Mexican Walking Fish Melbourne

Mexican Walking Fish (also known as Axolotl) are a great pet for kids because they are simple to look after. Firstly they come in 5 colours, a mottled black/green is the wild type colour whilst black, gold, white and albino are also common.

Secondly the maintenance required is a basic 50% water change every week or so to keep the water nice and fresh which can be extended to 2-3 week intervals with a more efficient filter. Given the correct water conditions, diet and care the Mexican Walking Fish can live up to 15 years.

Mexican Walking Fish Care

To keep a Mexican Walking Fish healthy we recommend that chlorine neutraliser is used to remove the chlorine from your tap water as chlorine can be harmful as it breaks down their protective slime coating.

Also some Blue Water Conditioning Salt must be added to the water ensuring the health of your Mexican Walking Fish. It is not recommended to have aquarium gravel on the bottom of your Walking fish Aquarium as these can be swallowed while they eat. At Waterlife Aquarium we have a great range of frozen diets and pellet diets perfectly suited to keep your new pet Mexican Walking Fish in perfect condition.

Although very placid if left alone, Mexican Walking Fish can be aggressive towards each other if agitated, underfed or overcrowded. Other tank inhabitants, such as goldfish, small crustaceans and young axolotls are all potential food should they wander too close. Mexican Walking Fish will snap out at anything within reach and fish may also nip at the axolotl’s gills, so it is recommended not to keep other small animals in the tank.
