I've not seen anything like this. I would advise them to take the axolotl to a vet to check those out.

The vet didn't know either. Someone suggested a bacterial cyst but given its location (neck, stomach) I thought it might be tumors or a fluid retention related illness. All the spots appear to be around the heart. Any ideas?

Do you know if the Vet did a culture of the fluid? I'd imagine that would have given some clue as to what may be wrong. Do you have any further information about how the axolotl is kept/ fed etc? With more information, there is a possibility someone may be able to identify what is going on.

Unfortunately she said the vet didn't know what it was and told her to do a salt bath. She needs a new vet. The water conditions look poor and the gills and frills are deteriorated.
