Most likely Columnaris,
It is fatal to Axies if not treated right away. Salt Bath time.
Get some AQUARIUM SALT. When my axie went through this I used API aquarium salt, if comes in a little cardboard carton,like the little milk jugs that school cafes give you. Get a large bowl/container/bucket, then fill it with about a gallon or two of water in it, make sure it matches the temperature of the tank, and put in the salt, one tablespoon per gallon. Keep him in there no longer than 15 minutes, best time is 10 minutes once a day. If kept longer gill deterioration will happen. Do t his for 3-4 days and he will be fine! :) Make sure to put a towel over the top to make sure light doesnt get in and stress him out more. Check you water, make sure Amonia is 0, and your PH is 7.2 or 7.4.
Good Luck!!!
