    Here a thread for Charlie's set up, and pictures if him. Charlie is a giant golden albino axolotl. He is 1 and 1/2 years old. He eats blood worms, earth worms, night crawlers, and occasionally the skin of my finger :(

    Sorry about Lucaya, must of been heartbreaking. Do you know why she died and will you be getting another friend for Charlie?
    Please put as many pics of him and his setup here as pleases you. I sure will enjoy them!

    Lucaya and Charlie mated for the first time last year, she laid lots if eggs and before I could separate them, Charlie attacked her. Axolotls are a bit canabolistic... I decided then to not get Charlie another mate, and he's happier on his own anyway.

    I'm embarrassed to show his tank... It has so much algae on it!

    Well I heard on YouTube that algae was good for them so whatever keeps him healthy :)
    He sure knows where his food comes from.
    Sorry again for your loss.

    Haha... Yes whenever I walk by the cage he starts swimming up to me. He's silly :p
    Yes, I was very sad when Lucaya passed, she was such a sweetheart. But I knew after the attack she wouldn't survive. I've made it my mission to name the next lizard/amphibian Lucaya after her.
