I have my axie in a tank with a female and just overnight it appears that he has become quite swollen in his cloacal region, about a week ago he left spermaphores all through the tank (but my female wasn't interested) so my theory is that he has just regenerated what he lost. or at least i hope thats all it is.

Does anyone know whats happening to my axie.

please help,
Nina

If there's no redness or discoloration, it could be that he's just very interested in your female. Don't be surprised if he stops eating for a bit too.

If there is redness, discoloration, or if it is extremely swollen; you may want to post a pic to see if there's something else going on.
