Rep: JoesAxolotls is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Hello! I'm a new axolotl owner

Hello, everyone!
I'm new to owning axolotls, and I just discovered this site. It seems great!
I just got my first axolotl (a juvenile albino that the breeder believes to be a male) five days ago, and I figured I'd introduce myself and ask for some advice straight away so that I can take the best care of him possible.
He's very small, just about the size of my thumb. I keep him in a 20 gallon long tank with a sediment of natural fine freshwater sand, and with six water plants and a cave to hide in. His water is about 60-62 degrees (I have a thermometer in his tank) and his water is dechlorinated tap water, for which I have a filter with three filter sheets. The filter is set on the lowest setting so as not to disrupt the water and stress the axolotl. I feed him live blackworms with a pipette every other day. He seems to be enjoying himself so far, but any advice would be appreciated!
Thank you
(Also, how do I post pictures on mobile?)

Welcome to the forum! I've never posted a pic from mobile but maybe someone will chime in.
