What's the deal with a axolotl?

Anybody have these? How big do they get? Can they go in a community tank?

I don't own one but I do know that they must have cool water. No higher than 75F I believe. Preferably cooler. Good water quality, low current, and no gravel. They will ingest it (not good). Larger stones and possibly sand might be okay.
If you use the Search function, you should find more info on keeping these.

They are opportunistic predators NOT a community tank creature. They will eat each other if they feel like it/have the opportunity. (Kinda like a frog/toad) Although they do seem able to live together, best to have the same size tankmates. I have a friend who keeps them.

They need nice clean water. Come in so many pretty colors, though some colors are more rare.
