I am no expert, but looking at the pictures in the other thread I couldn't really tell. Why don't you try posting clearer pictures of your lotl, especially of the gills, then maybe someone here can figure out if your axie has a fungal infection.

I'd say a wildtype, especially seeing the gold ring in the eyes. I can't see any fungus in the pictures. If it's white and fluffy yes it's fungus, if the skin is peeling then it's a slime coat issue. If it's the shiny bits on the skin then it's just the pigment. Hope this helps :)

I would say since it was the weekend it may be hard for a lot of people to come online. While waiting it helps to check other threads about fungus as it may help you identify it. It's better to just make one post because it'll be hard for everyone and yourself to keep track of them all. I think I responded to one of yours.

The gold spots are definitely pigment.

Sorry you are dealing with this issue. I wouldn't take it personally. The posts on this forum get a lot of views and few responses. There's one with 2,000+ views and just a few responses!

Mostly likely, the people who viewed your post just didn't have a good answer, or, any personal experience with the issue.

Good luck.

The real value in this forum are the years of backlogged posts with photos and discussions of various issues.
I wouldn't judge this forum's value or usefulness on how many people can reply to your threads. Searching for fungus, gill fungus, or even gills, will give you lots of examples of animals with fungus and without to compare to your own animal.
Chances are high that the people who did view your posts just couldn't reply with absolute confidence. You have to remember that most of us are just fellow keepers and learning ourselves.
Combined with the fact that over the weekend many people don't have time to access a forum. For example, last weekend I was on the north shore doing plant collection and identification for my university's herbarium and didn't have access to the internet for the vast majority of the trip.
I wouldn't be so quick to rule out this site as being useful, it's a wonderful tool for information gathering with many helpful threads on treatments, example setups, food quality tables, and links to more sites with all sorts of info. There's definitely more here than just waiting on replies to a thread.

I've merged all your posts together so all the information is in one spot.

Along the green bar at the top pf the page is a 'search' function button. While waiting for answers you could use that, if you type in 'fungus' you'll see posts with pictures and answers to reference your question. Also in the black bar under the banner is a tab saying ' Caudata Sites', in there are two sites dedicated to axolotl care.
One of the most common problems posted on this forum is axolotl fungus concerns, quite frankly all your answers will have been addressed there. I do appreciate that it is horrible waiting for answers when we are worried about the health of our pets, but this forum is amazing. There is a wealth of advice and information stored here over the years for easy for access. We are very fortunate to have this site.
