These guys are awesome! The feathery things on the side of their faces is how they breathe and they are one of the only animals that can self regenerate itself. They dont get too big i reckon 10cm and they eat meal worms, crickets, peices of fish, worms and some other stuff. Keep them in atleat a 20gal tank and add some features for them to climb on and make their lives interesting.
DO NOT LEAVE THEM IN THE DRY OPEN THEY WILL BE TORTURED!

I believe what you are referring to is an Axolotl. They are pretty cool little guys wouldn't mind having a couple.

There was an ad on Gumtree near me for a breeding pair of these. You have no idea how tempted I was........

They can hit a foot, need cool water (never above 74F), should be fed pellets, and there are effectively no fish that can go with them (the only thing that has ever worked for me is fancy goldfish).

No, they are too fast and will nip at them (usually tearing off the gills).
