Default Stressed Axolotls?

Well as the title says. I took a picture of both of them. Apparently a curled tail means the axolotl is stressed? Can someone confirm if mine are stressed?

They look fine to me. When they are stressed the very tip of their tail curls around into a little hook

They look fine to me as well. Like mandy said it could be a sign of stress if the tip of the tail is curled. If you are worried check the water pararmeters and the temp if both are ok then all should be ok......Are they eating ok???
