Rep: NedeauOwen is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Hello from Wisconsin

Hi all,

My 14 year old has been enamored of axolotls and blob fish for a couple of years. I am considering getting him a tank and set up for Christmas. My wife and had a 55 gal. Community tank with wonderful cichlids for fifteen years then converted it to a home for an iguana our family adored for several years. We haven't had a tank since we moved to Wisconsin however and I am feeling rusty. What do I need to know to help my son out?
He kept a couple of African frogs for almost three years so I believe he has the temperament for amphibians generally. Please advise.

Welcome. You'd have to cycle a tank before you add an axoltl, so the best route may be to either get him a gift certificate, or, get him the tank and supplies for Christmas and wait to get the axoltl when the tank is cycled.

You can find info on cycling by searching the forum; might be more useful than rehashing it here.

Good luck.
