Hello,
I have been having problems with my axolotls gills lately because they have been growing back. Today I notice something on his gills. It might just be skin growing or is it fungus? If it is fungus is it contagious? The tank is in great condition too.
Please help

I've had axies for a long time (never young until my current) and to be completely honest I'm not sure whether it is fungus or just new skin growth, if it is fungus definitely look into trying the fridge treatment (it's pretty easy) how old is it and is it looking better yet???

Do not fridge your axie, you should only fridge an axie when it is impacted with stones or near death. Fridging is not a cure-all for minor things - see it as ICU not a walk in clinic.

The picture shows healing gills, the little bumps are the new gill fronds forming. There is nothing wrong.
