My wife took this photo of Bill today.

He kind of "sleeps" floating near the plants.

Kieran, cute axie! Be careful with that Thermometer you have there, that type leaks really easily and the Mercury inside will kill your Axolotl. I had one that got cracked against the side of the glass tank, didn't even hit the side that hard and it shattered on the bottom.

He floats half sitting on the plants quite a bit, and in fact I fed him there this morning. He managed to gulp up his food without falling off.

A few more pictures here http://www.keiranmcmanus.net/gallery/animals?page=4

The thermometer contains red liquid, which i think is coloured alcohol, not mercury. I plan to replace it with a better alternative soon.

I deliberately located the tank in what I think is the coolest room in the house (new house) and so it doesn't get much light. The plants don't look like they will thrive.

Plus with all his plant hanging Bill seems to be pulling them out.

yeah, I couldn't afford lights for my tank so I just got plastic ones. julie and bobo didn't mind too much and julie was happy to lay her eggs on them instead of just dropping them on the ground! much cheaper than buying new plants all the time. julie liked to pull apart her plants too!oh dear. he he

I have real plants in my tank, I don't know what they are called though. Its the one nearest to the front of the tank, it has with white stripes on it.

Never had a problem with them needing light or anything.
