Treatments and remedies

It must be noted that regular aquarium fish remedies are not appropriate for use with axolotls and may be toxic to them. Always consult an axolotl expert before using any treatments or remedies and only ever use remedies specifically for axolotls.

Aquarium Cleaning

Regular aquarium cleaning must occur at least once weekly with a 25% water change. Refer to the environment section for further details on aquarium cleaning.


Axolotls should never be fed at extra intervals. Their feeding routine should always be closely followed and students should be supervised when feeding animals. Observe animals while feeding to ensure they are receiving the correct amount of food. Amount of food is determined by the amount of food consumed in one hour.
