Sick Axolotl?>Help! Fungus won't go away, all over body
elindsey22 16:05 15th November 2017
Hi all! I apologise to reach out but I am getting desperate.
My little girl has had what I believe to be fungus on her body for about three weeks now. It doesn't seem to be getting any better and may even be getting worse.
The first week I did a water change and kept a close eye on her water parameters to see if that would do the trick. It did not so for the past two weeks I have had her in the fridge, doing 2 salt baths a day for 3 days then stopping for three days, etc. I use 1 liter of water and 2 1/2 tbs of aquarium salt. Today I am going to take her out of the fridge but continue the salt baths on and off. I feel bad keeping her in the fridge and dont know how long is too long. Also, is it possible that (even thought I wash my hands) handling her that much is not allowing her to heal?
Thank you for any advice or ideas!
