Buy-Axolotls.com is the World’s Best “All Axolotl Website” The Axolotl care instructions are complete, easy to understand, accurate and will not endanger the Axolotl’s life. We also explain the science behind our Axolotl care instructions. Axolotls are now Extinct in the wild. The Mexican Government will not acknowledge the fact that the Axolotl are Extinct from the Wild. The reason why the Axolotl is Extinct was a man made problem; Water Pollution (Human Waste) found in the Water. Making the water safe and clean could have been done but the Mexican Government chose to do nothing to save the Axolotl For more information Click Here  The Axolotl is also known as: Mexican Water Dragon.

How do I know that information on this website is correct?
We at Buy-Axolotls.com have been breeding Water Dragons since 2001 and that is the only animal we breed. The information that we state on this website is what we do and have been doing since 2001. We have tested everything that we recommend to you on this website. For example we state that you can put two adults in a 10 gallon aquarium with no filter. You only need to remove any uneaten food and waste every day. We tested this by putting (qty 4) 12 inch adults in a 10 gallon aquarium and found that the (qty 4) Water Dragons could not build up enough Ammonia, Nitrate and Nitrate levels to harm the Water Dragons in the tank. These chemicals are coming from; Ammonia (cause by the Water Dragon’s Urine) and the Nitrate and Nitrate (cause by the Water Dragon’s Waste and Rotting Food) that is in the water. For all the Nay Sayers, do the test yourself. You will see I am right.

If you do water changes the 1 per week you will be removing 90% of the Ammonia, Nitrite and Nitrate in your aquarium. If you do not do weekly water changes then the levels of Ammonia, Nitrite and Nitrate in your aquarium will reach levels that will kill your Water Dragon. So it very important that you do water changes 1 per week. Doing water changes each week will greatly extend the life of your Water Dragons.
What preparation do I need to do before I get my Water Dragon – Axolotl?

I recommend that you set up your tank at least one week before ordering any Water Dragon – Axolotl. This will allow you to see if you can of maintaining the proper environment for your Water Dragon Axolotl. First fill your tank with fresh tap water, after 24 hours the chlorine will be out of the water because the chlorine turns into a gas. Once the chlorine is out of your tank water, it is now safe for the fish to breathe the water. You need to add at least quantity 10 Rosy Minnows in your tank. You can buy them at that Petsmart for about $.15 each. If minnows are illegal in the state that you live in, then you can test your tank by buying feeder fish at Petsmart or Petco. These feeder fish are usually small goldfish. Or you can buy some Guppies at your local Tropical Fish store. This will test your tank to see if it’s free from any chemical contamination. If your Rosy Minnows die, then you have a chemical contamination problem. You need to find the source of this contamination and correct it. Then test again with more Rosy Minnows. Most of the time the chemical contamination is coming from a “used” 5 gallon bucket, these buckets are used with cleaning solutions and are chemically contaminated. What I recommend is that you buy a new 5 gallon bucket. It’s also important that the water temperature is at or below 68° for a least one week. If you are having problems staying at or  below 68° I recommend that you try putting your tank on the floor. Some of the heat sources that you need to avoid are direct sunlight, heat registers and fish tank lights, all produce heat and will raise the temperature in your tank. If you cannot maintain a temperature at or below 68° degree then you need to buy an aquarium Water Chiller for a 10 gallon tank. Just Google; Aquarium Water Chiller 10 gallon.

What is the best location for a Water Dragons – Axolotl tank?
When choosing a location for your Water Dragons – Axolotl tank you need to take into consideration some very important factors. First being that the water temperature must remain between 57° to 68° any higher and your Water Dragons – Axolotl will die. The best temperature for an Axolotl is at 57° to 68°. If you maintain 57° to 68° temperature you can expect a long life for your Axolotl.  You need to keep your tank away from direct sunlight; heat registers because they are a source of heat. Do not use a tank light because that is another source of heat. The perfect environment for your Water Dragons – Axolotl is a basement (below ground level) especially if it is not heated. If you do not have a basement; I would recommend that you use a non-contact laser thermometer to help you find the coldest location in your house, apartment, or dormitory. If you cannot maintain a temperature of 57° to 68° degree then you need to buy either Aquarium Cooling Fans or an aquarium Water Chiller for a 10 gallon tank. Just Google “Aquarium Water Chiller 10 gallon” or look on Carigslist “Aquarium Water Chiller”.

What preparation do I need to do before I get my Water Dragon – Axolotl?
I recommend that you set up your tank at least one week before ordering any Water Dragon – Axolotl. This will allow you to see if you can of maintaining the proper environment for your Water Dragon Axolotl. First fill your tank with fresh tap water, after 24 hours the chlorine will be out of the water because the chlorine turns into a gas and will be out of your tank. Once the chlorine is out of your tank water, it is now safe for the fish to breathe the water. You need to add at least quantity 5 Guppies you can buy them at Petsmart or Petco and put them in your tank. This will test your tank to see if it’s free from any chemical contamination. If your Guppies die, then you have a chemical contamination problem. You need to find the source of this contamination and correct it. Then test again with more Guppies. You can leave the Guppies in the tank with the Axolotl because the Axolotls will eat the Guppies.

Most of the time the chemical contamination is coming from a “used” 5 gallon bucket, used towels, or Windex being used in a new Tank by the petshop to clean the windows. What I recommend is that you buy a New 5 gallon bucket. It’s also important that the water temperature is at or below 68° for a least one week. If you are having problems staying at or below 68° I recommend that you try putting your tank near the floor. Some of the heat sources that you need to avoid are direct sunlight, heat registers and fish tank lights, all produce heat and will raise the temperature in your tank. If you cannot maintain a temperature at or below 68° degree then you need to buy an aquarium Water Chiller for a 10 gallon tank. The smaller the tank the cheaper the Water Chiller is. Just Google; Aquarium Water Chiller 10 gallon and check Craigslist for used and new Water Chillers.
