Default Help there is something wrong with my axolotl

Hi everyone, so when i woke up today, i check on my axolotl (Bambi) and he was pale and his were white, smaller and turned forward. he's a leucistic but he is normally more pink. he is in a 30 gallon, i had just moved him yesterday because his previous tank was leaking. he has not moved since i woke up, and i am afraid to poke him, but he looks dead . anyone know what i should do, or whats the cause and how to cure it? please help

A picture would help.
Has he responded to poking?
Axies' gills go pale when they are asleep, so thats not necessarily cause for concern on its own.

he has not responded, in fact i knocked him off of his rock and he remained in that position, like regormortis kick in and his as hard as stone, is there any way to save him

If he's not responding to touch and he has gone stiff it sounds like he has passed - I'm sorry.
