Default Juvenile axolotl with black patches on feet

Hi there,

My juvenile axolotl is 10 weeks old and Iíve just noticed he has developed black patches on his back feet/legs. He is in a (very big) tub at the moment while his tank of finishing cycling, and Iíve been doing daily dechlorinated water changes and Iím feeding him live blackworm that I cut up small

Iím hoping this is just natural colouration as he does seem to have a few black freckles too so might be a dirty Lucy.

However, I have read about a disease called foot rot and Iím praying itís nothing like that.

Iíll attach an image (Iíve just fed him so he looks a bit fat), also just hoping he looks in good health generally?

Could it be dirt and particles built up from the bottom of the bare tank? For a while I had my young lucy in a bare bottom and got worried cus I saw something similar, but was relieved when it came off and I discovered it was just dirty and just sticking to the only thing it could.

How is it going? I don't think it's anything to worry about since it usually does happen as they age, unless you notice other signs of sickness.
