Default Floating baby axolotls

One of my axolotls laid eggs unexpectedly a while ago. I had/have them in some small tubs, but they were pretty crowded so I got one big tub expecting to put them in eventually. I left the tubs outside for a month to try to get the chemicals and stuff off. I put them in and they all died . So now I only have small ones and big ones. Some of the small ones are floating. I can see the bubbles in a few of them. What should I do?

I had a hard time following what you meant by the end of this post. You said all the eggs died? What is floating now?

About half of the babies died, but a few of the babies that survived have air bubble in them and are floating on their back.

Check the water parameters, usually having air bubbles either means fungus, or and ''air bubble problem" The technical terms, I knoweth not.
