Rep: Kelly Castelo is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Gills that won't return

Hello there!

My axoltl seems to have a long term gill problem. It started when a fish hacked It. She never recovered. She was very ill at the time: had stopped eating for nearly two months. So I thought the lack of recovery had something to do with that. But now she's back to eating and still her gills don't grow back.
Any advices about what can be done?

Can you please post your water parameters: temperature, pH, ammonia, nitrite and nitrate.
