Rep: hydrablaze is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Daily Water Temp. Changes

Hey I'm trying to get my first set-up going for an axolotl, and I had some concerns about the water temperature.

The water temperature in the tank has been max 71.6 F and min 66 F. The temperature currently cycles like this daily as the AC system also cycles depending on the time.

Question: Are daily temperature fluctuations like this likely to stress out the potential axolotl?

Thanks for the info!

Yep fluctuations are really stressful for them. You could try setting a fan on the surface of the water when the a/c is off, monitor that and see if it keeps it a fairly constant temp. Alternatively a chiller will be easier but more expensive
