Red face 4 Foot Tank - Eternal Work In Progress

Hi All,

Well, the bets are in, the stakes are high - how long will this setup last until Jacq changes it again!

I think my axies are ready to submit an entry for 'a new owner wanted' in the advertisements section of the forum...

My axies will appreciate your vote in their favour and will pay bribes in cheesy grins to anyone who says "Jacq, it looks great, you don't need to change it again".

I'm in love with that centre rock, it was a bargain. I purchased it cheap as chips from the aquarium as their scales broke down and the young man serving me had obviously never excelled in 'Home Economics' at school - Grams and Kilograms - there is no real difference is there?

Did I mention that I was in love with that rock?...No, well here it is in a close up - I suppose the axolotls are not that bad looking either (except Vader - a veteran of many wars).

Aragorn has had enough of that crazy woman with the camera and is retreating into his favorite hide:

So what do you think?

Does Jacq need to change it again?

Well Jacq where do you want me to begin............................................. .................................................. .................................................. ......... Actually I think its just fine, buts thats coming from someone who thinks up a new way of arranging my axie tank every time I look at it. I'm settled with mine for the time being, waiting to see if my java fern and anubia survive, its looking good so far, I can see new growth.
Your axies have plenty to climb and hide in, Im sure they must be happy in there..........but you won't stop there will you? or will you....................... :)

Your tank and axis are beautyfull, if i was an axi i would love to live in that tank looks lovely and plenty of hide outs in the rocks. Beens the water is so high though i would put a lid on top of the tank as axolotls have tendency to swim rapidly and may jump out.But nice set up and your axis are so cute.

Well, I am new to this, but I really LOVE your tank.
It really looks natural, like a little axie palace!
If I had more space and money...
What kind of axolotl are yours?
Melanistic and gold albino?
Names?

I know this only too well - there is actually a glass lid that covers the whole tank - my shoddy photography has managed to hide it away .

The axolotls in this tank are Vader (Male - Melanoid), Aragorn (Male - Gold Albino) and Faramir (Male - Axanthic albino...I think).

I have two other tanks that are three foot and also um...works in progress ...each have two axolotls.

2nd Tank: Aranae (Female - Melanoid) and Arwen (Female - Leucistic)
3rd Tank: Merry (Male - Gold Albino) and Pippin (Male - Wild Type)
