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.

keep tubbed away from you leuci

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.

    Hey y'all, recently my juvenile axolotl's tail has been floating and can swim down but his tail lifts to an angle and I believe that it is stressing him out. He gets in between his plants to balance himself and I am cleaning out the bottom of the tank with my baster. I believe I overfed him and he also may have eaten many air bubbles. He's been like this for nearly 1 1/2 days.

    Hey, does anyone know if hot glue is fine to glue rocks together?

  • MVM1991:
    Should be. Hot glue is good when dry I believe, just don't let it get too hot and you should be good. Most super glues are good as well just watch out for flume warnings

    hello, I am currently tubbing my axolotl due to cycling the tank. I have read different answers on how many times to do a 100% water change a day when tubbing. Some say once and some say twice. I just want to actually ask and get answers for myself. Thank

  • Murk:
    As often as you need to keep the water clean! Since you´re cycling, I assume you have a test kit. Just test a few times to see how long it takes for your ammonia to go up, and as soon as it does, change the water.

  • Kwags:
    Yes,I have the master test kit. Thank you! So just test the water in the tub that my axolotl is in now to gauge off of for changing?

    Unlike
  • Murk:
    That´s the most accurate. Depends on the size of the tub etc. - you just want to make sure the water is always clean

    When little axolotls are tubbed is it common for them to get a little more spunky then usual? Water temps around 64-65 F and has been changed today with prime added

    Uh. That depends on your definition of "spunky"?

    Hi does anyone know if jungle fungus clear is safe to use for my axolotl? She has some either fungus or bacterial growth on her fillibrae and maybe body and I read that's good to use if you aren't sure if the problem is bacterial or fungal

    That jungle fungus clear. I've been dealing with some fungus with my axolotl on and off this summer. The Holtsfreter solution and water changes just seem to do the trick after a bit

    Where do you get the holtsfreter solution? I've been upping water changes but salt bath seems to be more stressful/harmful than beneficial because she does not like to be caught!
