Rep: AndyTheAxolotl is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Axolotl Spits out blood while eating

Hey guys,

Today when I was feeding my axolotl she started bleeding a tiny bit and then spat out a blood clot. Food was the same as normal which was just a cube of specially formulated frozen axolotl food. She swallowed the cube and then some blood started seeping from her mouth and eventually she spat out a lump of blood. Water parameters were perfect and there are no signs of fungus or infection. She lives alone in a 150L tank. Do you guys think I need to take any further action or is it a one off thing? I'd prefer not to do salt baths as she gets stressed really easily when getting moved.

Thank you

Maybe it was just something from her food?
Anyway her gills don't look so great.

What is in the specially formulated axolotl food? Is it commercial food or home made?
