Hi,

So I have decided to make my new tank a coldwater setup... The tank is about 20-25gals and its filtered by a sponge filter (I have very good air pump).

Id like to get a axolotl but i have a few questions and concerns...

1) Would it be ok to have no substrate? from what i know they can be a little messy so id like to have it bare bottom so i can hover up every speck of dirt once a week.

2) Considering they are messy would a sponge filter be ok? 80% water change once a week and im pretty good with not overfeeding. I also intend on planting it.

Thanks!!
