Axolotl Sitter

Post by soilentgringa » Sat Jul 21, 2018 8:57 pm

I get to babysit my friend's axolotl while they go on vacation and I am so excited! He is so cute. He's golden yellow and his name is Solluxolotl.

How is he dealing with the heat, or does he have a chiller? I've never had one since they need such cold temps. Always wanted one though!

They have some sort of fan system set up; the water does have to be in the 60's IIRC.
