Rep: Isabella81 is an unknown quantity at this point
Unhappy My axies arenít doing well... pls help.

I went on vacation and when I got back they werenít doing very well, and Iím moving soon and I am afraid to move them. My male axolotls gills are degrading, and my female has white fuzz on her gills. They are both eating and Iíve been keeping their tanks very clean. What can I do to cure them quickly, so they have time to recover before we move. They are in separate tanks but I wanted to put them together in a 40 gallon long in march, when I move.

thank you!

What are your water parameters? Gill issues are usually due to poor water chemistry. For the axolotl with white fuzz, give salt baths according to the instructions on the sticky on this thread. The quickest way to heal is to address the water quality and give salt baths to the one with fungus and keep an eye out for any developing on the other guy. Botanicals such as Catappa leaves are supposed to help with healing as well, I don't have experience there
