* If you have dry skin, make sure you moisturize regularly after washing your face. Your body naturally reacts to dry skin by releasing more oil to moisturize the dry skin. The more oils that your body releases, the more pores get clogged causing blackheads and zits. If you moisturize regularly then your skin won't become as dry which alleviates the body from releasing excess oil that clogs your pores.

*Sometimes an axolotl is being bullied (nibbling on limbs, kicking, stealing food, etc.) by another axolotl because of its size. If this occurs frequently think of separating them until both are equal in size, or the smaller axolotl is old enough to defend himself (at 2 or 3 years they are adults).

*Being amphibious, axolotls are very sensitive to [[Test the Water in an Aquarium|water quality]]. A water conditioner can be used on tap water to create water that is clean enough for them; tap water that has been dechlorinated is actually better for axolotls than distilled water, because they benefit from minerals in water. In fact, experts recommend using dechlorinated hard water for best health. Also make sure the difference in temperature is not too large.
 
*Any sharp edges in your tank can cause harm to the soft skin and external gills of an axolotl.

*Axolotls breed fast and a lot, so watch out when you have a female and a male axolotl (male is larger, has a squarer head and will most definitely have a large cloaca). If a female axolotl gets pregnant (noticeable by the round almost transparent belly) try to keep an eye on her and give her enough food. Axolotls will eat their own fry, therefore breeding should be done in a different tank to prevent this. A female axolotl can lay between the 100 and 300 eggs.

*Do not buy a parrot that is not weaned. Hand feeding a baby parrot is a VERY specialized skill and you can seriously injure or kill a parrot by improper feeding. The parrot will not be more bonded to you personally because you were the one to hand feed it! Unless you're an expert, wait until they're weaned to bring them home.
