Hi team,
I've had my axolotl for about 4 months now and it has only just started getting warm here in Australia so I got a Hailea 130A. However, I currently have an internal filter but would be keen to swap it for a canister since I either need that or a pump for the chiller.
My tank is 64L or 16.5 gallons.
My question is does it matter what canister filter I get in terms of working well with the chiller? Or is the only requirement to work with the size of my tank?
Any recommendations on filters? Bonus points if you can recommend best filter media for axys as well.

The chillers should be rated for tank size. The chiller will have a gph or liter per hour pump recommendation on the statistics.

    @ChocoUniversa, Buy some ammonia and an eyedropper from Walmart and a water test kit for ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates. Figure out (through testing) how many drops it will take to get the ammonia level to the test's maximum measurement. Add that same number of drops every 24 hours. Eventually, the ammonia will start to go down as it's converted to nitrites. Keep adding ammonia. The nitrite levels will spike for a while and then they too will start to go down as they convert to nitrates. These you get rid of by doing water changes, which you should be doing anyway throughout the process. Once all of these are at low levels, your aquarium is ready. It takes about a month, maybe two (mine took a month and a half). Be sure to add ammonia until the day of or the day before you add your axolotl.

  • Kmia_13:
    Hey guys, this is my first time using this so bear with me. I have an adult axie who looks like he’s developed some fungus on gills. It’s still really small and only on one part. I put him in a 10 gal quarantine tank with an Indian almond leaf. I want to give him a black tea bath but not sure if I can add my black tea to the tank with the Indian almond leaf in there. Any advice?

    Should I fridge therapy and salt wash? or will this not be wise when she is morphing.

    @BChen3695, what are your parameters and temp? The fact that they're raised bumps could indicate fungus or bacterial infection.
