Was 5 axolotls now just 1 axolotl, a group of white cloud mountain minnows, 2 x huge amano shrimp and a ton of cherry shrimp.
Axolotls like it cool and dark so set this up with low light plants (water hyacinth provides shade) no heating and very low currents. All plants chosen because they can be attached to rocks/wood so cant be dug up by the axie and can be easily moved for cleaning. Everything else in there is just fodder for the axolotl if he's lucky enough to catch anything! Some may wonder how the plant life in here is thriving having just a 24 watt tube (works out at something like 0.2 wpg), Just shows you dont need all the expensive gear and ferts!
