Hey guys, not sure if this is the right board to ask, as they're not technically entirely fish, but does anyone else keep Axolotls? A friend of mine has just set up a tank with 2 in and I'm just trying to get the right info for him.

We found some articles that said they don't need heat, and yet my sisters first reaction was that they need a heat lamp; is that only if you're encouraging them to be landfish? (I know that they can choose water or land) He has some neons in there (mostly intended as food admittedly) so we're not sure if it would be worth putting a heater in, but then again we worry that would make the water too warm for the Axolotls :roll:

Any and all advice appreciated :)
