Aquarium diagram explanation

A rectangular tank measuring 60cm x 40 cm x 40 cm high, sufficient for two axolotls. It contains a thermometer to maintain temperature at 10–25°C, rocks, well-anchored plastic plants, washed gravel and an efficient filter pump which must be changed or replaced regularly. It is to be placed out of direct sunlight, vacuumed daily to remove food debris and excrement and cleaned thoroughly every three months. When refilling tank after cleaning chlorine must have time to evaporate. Axolotls should be fed 2–3 times weekly with strips of beef using blunt forceps – a multivitamin supplement is also advised.
