Rep: Micahhir is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Bumps on face?

This is a picture of my axolotl. She is stressed as seen from the tail, and the water parameters are as follows: 7.6 ph, .50 ppm for ammonia, 0 Nitrite, 0 Nitrate. I have applied Prime to detoxify the present ammonia, but had to restart the cycle in the tank, due to high Ph in the tank. She is not eating, and I am not sure what the bumps on her face are. Should I be concerned, or should I wait it out? Should I give her a salt bath or fridge her, or allow the tank to cycle and see if she will decrease in stress then?

How are you going with this one? A pH of 7.6 is perfectly fine. If you have 0 nitrate then your cycle has crashed. What are the parameters now? I would tub the axolotl until the tank cycles again.
