    Like others I have been advised to use sponges once (I was toying with the pet store employee by asking newbie questions for fun).

    I have axolotl, some fire-shrimp and some fish in a big tank. The axolotl are like giant vacuum-cleaners when fed pellets :)

    If you want to see something really mezmerizing get some kuhli loaches or bottom feeding catfish. They’ll hide most of the time but when you drop food in theyll slowly emerge out of the shadows and sniff around like a mouse for food. When they finally get it they turn into a frenzy.

    Those species unfortunately are incompatible with the axolotl. Catfish suck themselves on to an axololt and cause major damage to their skin. There are just three or something species that are 'allowed' with axolotl.

    Same thing with bichirs, I’ve seen photos of plecos that just completely sucked all the slime coating off of them.

    A tarantula could totally be a service animal; it keeps people out of your personal space.

    People advise me to feed them more when I say 2 of them don't eat and one eats once a month. I tell them I super promise I'm not starving my animals and they still look at me like I'm nuts.

    “Yeah, just feed them 2-3 crickets a day and you’ll be fine. Trust me, I keep geckos, I know what I’m doing.”
