Caudata Culture Species Entry - Ambystoma mexicanum - Axolotl

Axolotls: The Fascinating Mexican Axolotl and the Tiger Salamander

These sites will help. There is also a few books available on axolotl care. They can be fed on a few things, mainly defrosted bloodworm and earthworm. You should not need extra heat they do best at temperatures between 60F and 70F. The sites above will answer your questions in more detail. You will need to cycle the tank as well if it isn't already and ensure the water is suitable. Here are links for cycling:
Caudata Culture Articles - Cycling
Caudata Culture Articles - Water Quality

Use the search option to find more info and come and look in the amphibian section - there have been similar questions there
