Axolotls as Pets
A baby Axolotl will cost around $20, and a grown Axolotl will cost about $35. A standard starter set up will cost about $85, including filter pump, gravel and tank pH test kit (larger rocks, plants and other ornaments may cost extra). More advanced and efficient filtration systems can cost up to $165. I personally would not recommend an Axolotl as a pet, only because they are very endangered creatures that deserve to live in their natural habitats.
