Axolotl Feeds

Axolotl Feeds


    Formulated by Sustainable Aquatics nutritionists, we used a commercially available trout pellet to deliver the macronutrient (calories and proteins) profile that axolotls require.  We add a patented  algae-derived micronutrient supplement to deliver all of the trace minerals, metals and vitamins found in natural axolotl diets. 

    The result?

    Our Axolotl diet delivers faster growth rates and improves health, fecundity and longevity. 

    Our axolotls know what is good for them preferring SA's Axolotl diet over any other feed we have tested. 

    Feeding Guide

    Axolotls can be fed daily, but skipping 1-2 days will not cause any harm. 

    Axolotl Size  Pellet Size
    3"-4.5" 3.2mm
    4.5"-5" 3.2mm and 6.4mm*
    Over 5" 6.4mm

    Generally feed what an axolotl will eat in a 2 minute period typically 4-6 pellets once a day.  If it looks hungry,  a second feeding can be offered. 

    * During the transition from 4.5-5" start by offering 1-2 large pellets and over time shift the ratio until the axolotl transitions exclusively to the larger pellet size.  If the axolotl refuses the larger size or spits it out,  go back to feeding smaller pellets until the axolotl grows a bit more. 


    Storage:  For best lifetime,  store up to one year in an airtight container in a refrigerator. If refrigeration is not available,  store in an airtight container at room temperate in a dark location and the product will last for several months before drying out.
