Default Sick juvenile

Do you have any advice for salte baths? I have a tank with 3 6 inch juveniles. 2 albino and 1 wild type. 29 gallons. The wild type has a damaged gill and has trouble floating without tilting, and also stays at the top of tank all day. Should i sath bath all three? Or just the sick one?

You only need to do a salt bath if there is fungus present. What are your tank parameters and temperature? I can also see they are on sand, which can cause impaction on axolotls smaller than 5 inches.
Some axolotls like to float but if it struggles to get down to the bottom it could be gas.
