Rep: katyhrm1 is an unknown quantity at this point
Default My axolotl is bloated and missing part of her tail?!

Hello, I have 2 separate issues going on with my female axolotl currently. The first is that she is growing increasingly bloated, but she isnt floating and shes still acting normal, so Im not entirely sure why. At first I thought she was pregnant, because she is with a male axie of the same age (I purchased them together and one ended up being a boy, the other a girl.) However, shes getting bigger and bigger in the belly and Im getting quite concerned.

The other issue is that Zeppelin (the male) bit off a chunk of her tail.

So first, any ideas as to why shes so round? And second, how do I treat her tail?
