Axolotl

The axolotl, or Mexican salamander, is known as a walking fish. However, it is not a fish at all. It is actually an amphibian. Axolotls have gills outside of their bodies, which have a fringed appearance.

What do axolotl eggs look like?

They are, in fact, very similar to Frog Spawn and are generally laid upon plants. They look like Brown/Black 'dots' coated with a clear membrane - though a lack of pigment in the egg would suggest that one parent was an Albino Axolotl. Sometimes, though, pigment appears later in the development.

Can you put axolotl and betta fish in the same tank?

No, this isn't a good idea. The betta might nibble the axolotl's delicate gills, and a big axolotl could swallow a betta, but the most obvious reason why the two are incompatible is that they prefer very different water temperatures. Bettas are tropical fish that require relatively high temperatures of 25-30 degrees Celsius, whereas axolotls prefer their water cooler, around 15 degrees.

How do axolotls mate?

In the breeding season (June to December) males deposit small packets of sperm on the bottom of the pond. They then lead females to the packets, where the females then pick up several packets with their cloaca. Fertilization then takes place internally, and the female lays fertilized eggs about 24 hours later.

Are axolotls territorial?

It depends. Axolotls can be kept with other axolotls AS ADULTS, and in fact prefer it due to the fact they are very social. When they are not adults, however, they will kill each other when kwpt with each other. There is a simple rule of thumb for axolotls: since they are at the top of their natural food chain, If something moves and is smaller than its head, you can bet an axolotl can and will eat it. Also note that some fish (especially cichlids) may nibble on the axolotls gills if kept with them and hurt them alot, so keep kind fish like mollies and guppies with them.
