Just got myself new tank 160 Litre so plenty of space for my axl, I have still to cycling it.

Any interesting design ideas ? Or anything you wished you done with your tank at the start? (my imagination is limited)

All tips welcome :D

I often wished I had siliconed slate tiles to the base of my axolotl tank before adding water. I still haven't done it and its been close to 5 years since I started planning it :/

I made a pretty cool 3D background I wish I did it earlier. It's only been a few weeks in there.

I always get cool ideas from watching a show called "Tanked" but what I really want to do some day is something like what's shown in the picture I've attached.

When trying to think of how I want to set up a tank it helps me to imagine 1) what I want to see every day when looking at it 2) What my axolotl would like/would interact with and 3) what would make it easier for me to take care of more practical matters such as cleaning and removing waste. I hope you get to have some fun setting up everything and I look forward to seeing what you decide to do with it.

I'll be getting a bigger tank for my axolotl soon, so I've been thinking about some of these things too. I've thought of taking small slate rocks and using silicone to stick them together into a cave, and I was gonna stick a lot of live plants in there, putting a lot of long plants that will reach the top of the water along the back like a background.

Some driftwood in there would also look nice, with some moss on the rocks and driftwood.

That Mario Bros tank looks great!

    My axie is acting woerd he was a rescue as stated in a different post he got better and now seems to be deteriorating again...again all tank conditions are OK and as should be. He seems to have some black dapple like pattern under his bottom lip? Is that normal? And his two back feet have a little wierd growth? Almost? Tiny tiny tiny lump. His capillaries in his feathers also appear darker and more visible. Any help would be appreciated
