Question New Spots On Face And Gills!

Hi, all! Just made this account. I'm very worried over the health of my axies. I just bought three, and within 48 hours of having them, at LEAST one of them developed spots on his face overnight. Now all of the sudden the spots has moved into his gills, as well. Please help me, and tell me what to do, and how to help them. It's progressively getting worse. Thanks so much!

Hi Josh and welcome to the forum.

Looking at your picture I would suggest that your axolotl is a leucistic and the spots on his face and gills are just pigmentation, which will develop as he matures and are nothing to worry about.
However, I'm quite new to this, so it might be worth posting your water parameters and some more pictures and see if one of the more experienced keepers has further advice.
