Exclamation Tank lost its cycle...

Hi guys! My tank somehow uncycled itself so now I'm left with two axolotl's that are in tubs. My oldest one, Bowie, hasn't eaten in two days since he's been in the tub. I've tried worms and pellets, but nothing is sparking her interest. Loki, the little one, has eaten pellets and worms since he's been in the tub. I'm doing 100% water changes for them both daily. Loki is all over the tub and Bowie is moving occasionally.


I think Bowie is highly stressed due to the tubbing as well as the ammonia spike that occurred in my tank. Do you guys have any suggestions on what to do from here? Who knows how long my tank will take to re-cycle... but I need some help because she's stressed and it's making me stressed.

Please help!

It takes 6-8 weeks for a filter to complete a cycle. Good luck! I hope your axies pull through!!!
