Does any one here know what a small red spot on the nose of my axolotl maybe?:confused:

It looks like it could be from running into some thing but im not sure.

Thanks

Hey sorry for the short comment with the photo i was in a rush to get out...

I am talking about the small red pimple looking spot on the left side of my white axolotl, my spotty one is just camera happy:D

It seams like the nostril:confused:

Thanks again

It does look like the nostril, but no idea why it looks red..maybe it got caught by the other one scrabbling for food. I'd keep an eye on it but suspect it will clear up by its self.
However...... your stones in the tank are more likely to cause a problem. Axolotl are rather prone to gulping in their food...and what ever my be close by too, stones that size can get caught in their stomach and cause big problems.

Thanks for the help, im hoping it clears up soon also. as for the stones i know they are not a good idea and am in the process of getting sand which i think will look better ;)
