Exclamation Please help! Sick rescue axies

Hi, I recently rescued two axolotls, the lady kept them in a small tank, no filter & no water changes. They have white dots on them & white around their mouths (looks like the skins being eaten away) & will not eat ANYTHING (tried bloodworms & earth worms) the lady fed them on frozen liver.
I have attached photos on the problem areas
I am beginning to use Furan 2 to treat them but wondering if its something more serious
I'm from the UK btw

please share any insight to help, they're much worse than I thought.

Default Re: Please help! Sick rescue axies

It sounds like a fungus. If so, what you can do is go out and get some aquarium salt 2 buckets, and put 2 gallons of water in each bucket, and add 1 tablespoon per gallon. Put the Axies in the bucket, one axie per bucket,and if possible, put oxygen in the water. Keep them in there for no longer than 10 minutes a day, and on the 4th treatment they should start eating again. Heres where I got my info from:



She starts talking/showing the treatment about 2:55, she can explain better than I. I hope they pull through!!!
