Rep: Vithush is an unknown quantity at this point
Default New tank ideas

Hey everyone.
So in a previous post I explain the situation in which my amazing axolotl came to my tank. Originally my thank was only supposed to be plants. The tank is only a 5.5 gal and I'm upgrading to a 30 gal long. Does anyone have any suggestions on the dimensions and set up tips to ensure my little guy is happy. Any advise would be helpful I'm still new at this. The pictures below are now vs when I first got him from the previous owner who kept him in a 1.5 gallon. Unfortunately his tail is permanently crooked at the tip.Click the image to open in full size.Click the image to open in full size.

It's a good thing that you're upgrading your tank size, because 5.5 gallons is not enough room for your axie lol. But anyway, It's good to have a lot of plants, axies love them :) but it's also very important to give them hiding spots and such, just for they're personal security :) Also, I noticed that you have a blacklight on over your tank, which is fine, but definitely don't have it on any longer than 15 minutes at a time. Hope I could help
