Hey guys awhile ago I said I was going to start up an axolotl channel and I just posted up my first how to video. It's mostly just for the beginner but I'm hoping to make them more and more advanced with each video. If you guys have any ideas for my next video I'd appreciate it!

Cover the basics! Feeding and cleaning? Maybe an example of normal axie behaviour could help too?

Will definately subscribe

I love this idea!! How many threads are created on just the the simple basic stuff? I think using "visual aides" may help out those that aren't into reading for their research. Let's give it a try :cool:

Good quality vid man. I really like your shelving racks, could you post the source? I'm in desperate need of organization as tanks continue to fill my room.

Keep it up!

I just bought it at menards for around $150. I'm sure if you go to your local hardware store for shelving they'll have something similar. Just looks at how much pounds each shelf is rated to hold.

Hmm that's odd, everything seems to be in working order. Did you get it to work?

It would be exactly the same but with a bigger filter and more sand, plants and hides to fill up the tank

It's so funny I came across this post, before I joined I totally watched 2 of your videos! They really helped me to make sure I had my tank set up right. Thank you!

I would love to see one on normal axolotl behaviour! I see so many posts from worried owners that turn out to be completely normal behaviours, and I remember for the first two weeks whipping out the computer every time Toothless so much as yawned >.<

Fantastic! To be honest I really look forward to the cycling video too. There's lots of fab info out there but it doesn't cover the day to day cycling business, only the during and after. I check my results on my cycling tank every two days but I'm not quite sure what exactly they're saying. I do need to read up on it a little more though.

It's great to have someone show you and explain these aspects of care in plain English (or Hungarian, or Japanese, etc) :D

Awesome! I can't wait for your other videos. It's definitely one thing to read about doing all of this and another thing to actually do it. And perfect timing for me to have watched this video since I'm probably going to be setting up at least my sand and water this week!

I would like to know how to safely transfer an axolotl from one tank to another. Living in west Texas he might be spending some time in the refrigerator if the tank gets to warm.

This is so wild, I am getting my first Axolotl very shortly so I have ben reading and watching everything I can find so I will do no harm and I saw your video on you tube just last night.

It was great. Look forward to more.:happy:

I love your channel man. It's taught me a lot. :D
Why'd you stop making vids? :(

    @axolotl nerd, rads, the cycle has crashed or the tank wasnt fully cycled to start with. Remove the animals to a seperate tank or tub, give 100% daily water changes. It can take a while to cycle a tank if its yr first time.

    Hey guys! We had our first unexpected hot day and I was an idiot and forgot to put on the fan for my axolotl tank. When I came to feed her at around 7, I noticed the tank was 75 degrees!! It has never been this warm, it’s always a stable 67ish without a fan. It was only this warm for today (yesterday it was normal temps), and I immeditately got the fan on when I saw. It is down to 69 degrees now. Is my axie going to be ok with the increase in temperature for a day?

    Hi guys, I have a dwarf axolotl. Got him/her in February and since it’s grown to around 4.5 inches it has constantly been constipated. Having to fridge the poor thing every few weeks. Has anyone else got a dwarf and had these problems?

    Hey guys, one of my axolotls has developed some fungus on one of her gills, I've started salt baths, but do salt baths need to be done in the fridge, some people said I should have her in the fridge permanently during the process, even when not in the salt bath, is this true? As some people said its unnecessary as long as the tank is below 20°c which it is. Also do I need to get them both out the tank and clean it out?
