Rep: Swincebomb is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Do these Axolotls look stressed?

Hi there,

I'm about to adopt two Axolotls that need re-homing.

I think the tank they are in is too small for them, so I have a larger one I will put them in when I get them.

I'm no expert and so far I've only seen pictures of them but I think they look stressed. One is looking quite thin and the other has a curved tail which I have read can indicate stress. They are apparently both still eating well.

Would be interested to get the thoughts of others.

Will definitely be adopting them regardless but want to get some insight into what I may need to prepare for.
