Default Setup for future lotl

Here's some pictures I took of the setup I have for the axolotl I plan to get sometime very soon. It's all cycled and ready to go. The rocks on the right form a little cave hide (supported well so it won't collapse). The filter is an Aqueon and the flow was pretty bad so I DIY'd my own baffler which redirects most the flow to the surface. The substrate is black sand. I have some thriving duckweed in there at the top, all the other plants are fake but awesome. I have a light above the tank so I can see better (it's actually in a closet so it stays cooler) but I made sure there was plenty of shade to offset the light for the little guy. I plan to feed pellets/worms in the dish so it's easier cleanup.

I'm a wee bit excited :) I've always been a huge reptile and amphibian person and that whole thing started when I got a red eared slider my freshman year. I've been super into aquatic tanks ever since, making the animals thrive, and axolotls are just such fascinating critters I finally saved up all the money I needed to put together a tank for one.

I'm looking at the sales page for lotls for sale, it's hard to choose where I want it from. I want a leucistic, 3-5 inches is fine with me. I'll be contacting someone tomorrow unless anyone here has a specific recommendation!

Margie was the breeder i got my two axies from - she's a forum member. They arrived in perfect health and are doing great in their new home. Highly recommend.
