Hi everyone any advice or suggestion is appreciated! I thank you in advance. I got my wild axie bsck in June and I got my lucy a week before my wild. I noticed my wild is really bloated and he doesn't use his one back leg because its pulled.back. my water parameters are all good and temperature is around 63-65 at all times .. my lucy is twice the size of my wild as well almost.

What substrate was he kept on before?
Did you quarantine at all?
Parasites are also possible

Not a dwarf and not looking like short toe ascities

He has nothing on the bottom of the tank. And im not sure before I got him. He is with the lucy and the lucy is a lot bigger now ..he is still small. The pictures is when i first got the wild and they were around the same size so putting them together and watching them closely to make sure either of them were getting nipped at. I thought was okay. But now that the lucy is a lot bigger im thinking I need to separate them now :( the last picture is today and I got them both in june one week apart

I would keep him tubbed and feed fatty foods like thawed raw salmon and or repashy grub pie

I suspect theres either a foreign object(s) i.e. rocks or parasites.

He was bloated when you got him so foreign object and or parasites would be from his original owner, parasites could be from worms as well.

Separate them ASAP - this guy in a tub to watch his eating and his poop.

    My axie is acting woerd he was a rescue as stated in a different post he got better and now seems to be deteriorating again...again all tank conditions are OK and as should be. He seems to have some black dapple like pattern under his bottom lip? Is that normal? And his two back feet have a little wierd growth? Almost? Tiny tiny tiny lump. His capillaries in his feathers also appear darker and more visible. Any help would be appreciated

    Hi...I used to have a Doctor Fish business...I closed about 3 years ago, but still have lots of big, chunky filtration rocks (lava) how could I clean a few of these to use with my Lottie, please? Would they help or hinder overall tank health? don't want to cause her any problems...love my girl to bits!! many thanks in advance. xx
