Tiger Salamander & Axolotl (Ambystoma tigrinum, A. mavortium spp, etc.) The Tiger Salamanders and the Axolotl are so popular amongst hobbyists that they have been given their own topic. If you're particularly interested in the Axolotl, there is a large section of the forum devoted mainly to beginner Axolotl enthusiasts (not this topic).

Unhappy Adult axolotl sore on mouth

We have a 3 year old male explore who has always previously been healthy has a fairly bad mouth sore. He is still eating frozen bloodwork, live blackstone, and frozen brine shrimp with a feeder fish thrown in every once in a while.

We semi-recently upgraded his tank size from 10 to 20 gallon, added some driftwood from a local aquarium store.

Thanks for any help, he is an important part of our family.

Default Re: Adult axolotl sore on mouth

I canít seem to find the post, but recently someone else posted something about their axolotl having a sore that was very similar. I believe the fix was that they took him to a vet and they rubbed something on the sore to help it heal

Did the sore appear after the tank transfer? Have you tested your water parameters?
