he is eating well but he is little tummy is swollen, and now he has a red mark down his left side. does anyone know what that red mark could be?
also i cant tell if he has a fungus or if it is just his color i think he is a golden albino and it is hard for me to tell if the "shiny" white spots are coloration or something else.
when i brought him home he had a broken leg, that actually looks like its doing much better, but something had chewed his gills and they arent growing back. can anyone tell me if they will grow back.
also, i do not wish to purcase another axie from the same place i got this guy because he was in such poor health when he came home, so does anyone know how to find a reputable breeder, as i'd like to keep 2, and quite frankly i question whether or not he's going to make it.
ps he is in the fridge, do you think i should do salt baths

His gills are likely to take a wee while to grow back, When we first received our axies, the two that had been shipped in the same bag had had a good ole chew of each others gills/legs. It took about 3 weeks - poss a little longer but seemed like ages as I prob spent too much time checking the progress or what appeared to be lack of each day! As for your other questions, sorry can't really answer but are you able to post a photo to show the red mark and "shiny" white spots? Also, how long has he been in fridge?
