Question Space for axies?

I have two juvies. Both brother/sister, sister/sister, brother/brother (im not sure yet). One is about
6 1/2 inches, and another darker colored one that's about 3-4in. They both share a 10 gal. Tank, with a divider separating them (so they dont fight). But, I've noticed they seem to be getting kind of cramped. How big do you think they should be before I give them each their own tank?

I think your axolotls are too big for a 10 gallon tank together at the moment. A full undivided 10 gallon tank is about the minimum recommended for an adult axolotl and seeing as one of yours is 6.5 inches already, it is only a couple of inches off being what is usually 'adult' size. I can see why they would be getting cramped.

So yea, I think you should get another tank as soon as you can :)
