Rep: Ferretz is an unknown quantity at this point
Question Axolotl fuzz?

My new baby axolotl has some fuzz all over his body and Iím really not sure what it is. Iíd have said fungus but itís not really on itís gills. What could it be and what should I do? He is a rescue, so heís really skinny. Now heís just really floating at the top and not even going down to eat.

Default Re: Axolotl fuzz?

Must be fungus and/or slime coat issue. How long have you had this one, and what kind of housing is it in right now? Can you test your water as well. Is it eating?
I would tub it in cool water and do tea baths to help soothe the skin, this will also help if it is fungus.
