Hey sorry to reach out so late, I don't always check the forum over the weekends. How is your axie doing? Have you attempted a salt bath yet?Thank you. I don’t really know who else to contact, so hopefully someone else sees this thread. I’ll try to reach out to the person I bought it from, and I’ll get back to you as soon as she’s better. Thank you so much for your help! These are my first axolotls so I’m not really sure how to deal with it other than a salt bath.
Generally the rule for salt baths is 2-3 teaspoons of salt per liter (about 4 cups) of water. Make sure the salt is completely dissolved. I usually set up 3 tubs; one for the salt solution, one for rinsing and the other as the quarantine tub. Only place them in the salt solution for about 10 mins.
Salt baths can be harsh on their gills and slime coat so monitor them closely.
