After moving my oldest axie into a larger tank it's started a second growth spurt; however something unusual seems to be happening with its tail. The top of the tail is growing faster then the bottom causing it to bend in a strange way:

If anybody knows what could be causing it, or if it's anything to worry about, please reply.

That exact same thing happened when our old axolotl had a growth spurt following a move to a new tank. Doesn't seem to bother him.

if its not worrying him i wouldnt worry about it. it could be genetics, or it could be a temporary thing and the bottom will catch up later. also i dont think they have 'growth spurts' as such, unless you had it in a extremly small tank, they tend to grow dispite the enviroment
