Default 2 very sad stressed morphing axies at fish shop :(

I was out feeding my addiction for aquarium shops & stopped in at one in the sydney area.

They had 3 axies in a tank & I was vomiting up scoria (volcanic type gravel) I saw he & another tank mate were gill less & looked as though they were morphing the girl at the shop didn't care at all & when the older man (owner??) turned up I pointed out to him that the gravel is unsuitable etc etc - he didn't care either! Grrrrrrr so frustrating!

Am I right in thinking they are both morphing?

I know buying them would only perpetuate them being kept by crappy shops - but I just want to save them

Judging by their attitudes, all they care about is profit. I feel for the poor axolotls, but I agree, buying them would only indicate to the store that it is a profitable venture...

Oh poor babies, we are very lucky locally here we have some great pet store owners and aquarium shops who care for their axies really well. How sad for them they look so stressed. You could try pointing out how unwell they are and that they will imminently die and offer to take them free of charge and try to save them? worst they can say is no.

I once said to a pets paradise owner that Im not paying full price for an axolotl that is near death.

He let me have it for $2 because that's how much he pays for them.
However it died 3days later, it was beyond help but i wanted to try.
