Rep: katbeck99 is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Twitching Axolotl?

I have two axolotls in a 20 gallon long, one is fine, but one is twitching every once in a while. She is still eating pellets, but not as enthusiastically as she has been. I have only seen her twitch a few times, should I be concerned?

I'm sorry no one has answered this, I never had axies or saw this behavior in another species. Just see how it goes, I guess.

I don't have a specific answer for you but I would like to refer you to these helpful articles on Health,
Treating wounds, and other medical issues.
Scroll down to "Health and Illness."
