Do you mean the white on the ends of the toes?
If so then that is not fungus. As axolotls mature their toe tips change colour. The light axis get dark toe tips and the dark axis get light toe tips. Perfectly normal.
Fungus is more fluffy in appearance, like cotton wool.

I ment the white patches on his tail. Is that also just him aging?

Ah, sorry about the misunderstanding. I think that the white patches on his tail are also just markings. Check to see if they are flat or fluffy. If they are flat I'd say it's his markings. If they are raised and fluffy then it is fungus. Please let us know and we can offer more advice as required.

Personally that doesn't look like fungus to me at all. I would say it is just his markings showing up as he gets a little older. He looks perfectly healthy to me!
