Tiger Salamander & Axolotl (Ambystoma tigrinum, A. mavortium spp, etc.) The Tiger Salamanders and the Axolotl are so popular amongst hobbyists that they have been given their own topic. If you're particularly interested in the Axolotl, there is a large section of the forum devoted mainly to beginner Axolotl enthusiasts (not this topic).

Default Habitat size for tigers?

I'm getting two young barred tigers (A. mavortium mavortium) in a couple of months. They're just eggs now! What size of tank/terrarium do you recommend (length x width)? I was thinking 80 cm x 35 cm (31.5 x 13.77 inches), would that suffice for two, or should I get a larger one? I know they can grow to 30 cm's/1 ft.

Hi there! we want to see pics when you get them!! but meanwhile you should read up on them. Id assume the little guys would be fine in a 10 gallon terrarium all the way to adulthood if your only going to have 2 of them. Heres some reads for you!

Thank you so much for the links! I will definitely post pics when the little guys have arrived! Can't wait. I currently own three axolotls, and those got me interested in tiger sals! :)

I've met the parents of my babies to be - they looked healthy (so did the rest of the family)! :)

A 10 gallon is fine for when they're tiny. But is definitely too small for two adults. I have one adult in a 20 gal long.
