need to know information before owning an axolotl.
If you’ve never owned aquatic life before I highly suggest doing deeper and extensive research on the water cycle and how to maintain a healthy tank before getting an axolotl!
Do not use any fish supplements or medicines in an axolotl tank- it is dangerous to amphibians. Water conditioner being an exception.
