Rep: Exolotl is an unknown quantity at this point
Unhappy Axolotl sick? White gills?

So I just came home from vacation yesterday (gone about a week+) and my dad had the job to feed my little kiddos, but when I came home i noticed they had a bit curly gills so I did a 90% water change.

But this morning I noticed that they had some white stuff on the gills.

They have no other white patches on there body and the water conditions is all good but NO3, it's a bit high but going to my pet supply store as soon as they open to fix it and doing water changes too.

Temperature is 18 C

But just wanted to know if the white is because of the NO3 or is it fungus?

Posting a pic on my wild type male.
(I'll post a pick of my leucistic females gills as soon as I get her to leave her little hideout)
