Default Can I put sand in my tank?

I have a 3.5 inch axolotl. I just wanted to know if I can put him on sand and if it is safe for him. I have a very fine white sand and I also would like to know if my sponge filter will do good with the sand. Thank you!

Yes, sand Is great for axolotls :) I had sand for quite some time, but I found that if you don't clean it properly it will fog up your tank. For me, bare bottom is easier, but either way is perfecltly safe for your axie and should work with your sponge filter :)
