Welcome to Fantaxies, based in the heart of Colorado! Thanks for visiting our shop. We strive to bring you the most beautiful, healthy & adorable axolotls you can find.

We also frequently offer juvenile and baby axolotls that are large enough to go to new loving homes. Better yet, subscribe to our email list of axie alerts to be notified when we’ve added new lotls to the shop. Please note we cannot ship to the following states: CA, NJ, ME, DC, HI or NM in order to comply with legal regulations. We recommend floating the unopened bag in your aquarium for 20 minutes if there is a significant temperature difference. Please leave the lights off in the aquarium for the first 24 hours to allow the animal to adjust to its new environment after being in a dark box, and ensure the current from the filter isn’t too strong. Even with delays, axolotls that are healthy and well cared for like ours are very robust, and live arrival is expected. It is out of the ordinary even for the axolotl to arrive stressed to the point where they will not accept food, though if this happens it is not unheard of. Feed only what the animal is willing to eat, and do not leave uneaten food to rot in its tank or container. Our boxes are marked “Fragile” and “Live Animals” to notify postal workers that they should be treated with extra care. Depending on the size of the axolotl, the animal may be fasted prior to shipping to ensure the water in the bag remains as clean as possible. If you don’t cycle your tank first, it is recommended to perform daily water changes until your filter matures to remove waste and uneaten food. Our lotls are given a selection of high quality pellets, blackworms and frozen bloodworms in our care, depending on their size and age. Worms such as earthworms and nightcrawlers are the most nutritious food you can feed your lotl and help promote big gills and good growth. The recommended range is between 55-68 degrees F. The use of an aquarium fan can help to keep the water from overheating if you live in a warmer climate. Other appropriate tank mates can be added, provided they have been properly quarantined and you are willing to accept the risk that they may end up becoming food! Some are more failproof than others, and not all tank mates will always be compatible, depending on the personality of your individual lotl.

Our guarantee does not extend past delivery as we cannot control the environment of your aquarium. Please see our policies page for further details on our guarantee policy.How should I acclimate my new axolotl?We recommend floating the unopened bag in your aquarium for 20 minutes if there is a significant temperature difference. The bag can then be opened and the axolotl removed with a net from the bag water and transferred to the tank. Please discard the bag water. It is normal for your axolotl to be a bit stressed after shipping, but this is temporary and the axolotl usually starts poking around to explore its new environment within a short period of time. Please leave the lights off in the aquarium for the first 24 hours to allow the animal to adjust to its new environment after being in a dark box, and ensure the current from the filter isn’t too strong.How long can my axolotl be okay in the mail?Axolotls are incredibly hardy animals when it comes to shipping. Even with delays, axolotls that are healthy and well cared for like ours are very robust, and live arrival is expected.What should I feed my axolotl when it first arrives?When you first receive your animal, we recommend feeding lighter, easier to digest foods as its digestive system resumes its normal processes. Frozen bloodworms are one of the most readily accepted foods by lotls that have been shipped. It is out of the ordinary even for the axolotl to arrive stressed to the point where they will not accept food, though if this happens it is not unheard of. If your axolotl is very hungry, other foods may be given, such as chopped up nightcrawlers or pellets. Feed only what the animal is willing to eat, and do not leave uneaten food to rot in its tank or container.What is your shipping process like?Our animals are double bagged in thermal insulated packages.
