Rep: Coletteashlyn is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Housing 2 axolotls

So in October I got my first axolotl. Rowan is now about a year old. Hes very healthy and active and seems happy in his 20 gal. I got the 20 gal in December hoping to get another axolotl to house him with. In February I got my second axolotl when he was only a week or two old, so hes about 5-6 months and is doing well in his 10 gallon. He is still quite a bit smaller than Rowan, but he eats the same amount. Would it be too early to move him into the bigger tank so they can live together? If not how long should I wait?

I recommend waiting until they are the same size, to avoid any attacking from the larger one.
