Yes. It is nessesary to have a filter to keep the water moving and oxygenated. It is also helpful because the water's movement mimics the movement of water in the axolotl's natural habitat. Just make sure that the water does not move too quickly because it could be harmful. If the axolotl is not moved around by the filter and you can not see a current in the water (except above the filter and in its immediate area) then the filter is on too high. Be sure to change the filter regularly as much as needed. Every axolotl is different and thus the filter will become dirty at different times.
