My grandsons birthday is soon and his mother put an aquarium on layby. We went out for a drive and looked at the fish. He did not want one of the axolotols because he said they were dead. They were not moving. He pointed to the fish instead. Next minute the axolotols started moving so that caught his attention then. There were four different colours. A yellow, ambino, a white and a black. He then chose the golden yellow one. He carried it out to the car in excitement. It was still moving. We got home cleaned the fish stones, set up his tank next to his bed put water conditioner in. He keeps going back to check on it. Its still moving.
