Rep: fishsarefriends is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Please help with sick axolotl

Hi Caudata,

I'm hoping someone can help diagnose what could be wrong with my axolotl.

She is extremely skinny even though she is eating the earthworms that I feed her. She was living in a tank with two other axolotls that are doing just fine but it seems that my girl is not gaining any weight even though she is eating and now she is missing part of her tail. She is also missing her gills. I've moved her to a serrate tank to isolate her and figure out what could be wrong.

Can anyone please help with understanding what could potentially be causing this? I'm at my wit's ends trying to figure out what could be issue.

Please let me know if you need any additional information from me that could be useful.

Thank you so much!
