Details? What’s going on?
Friday night/sat morning I think it was she had a worm. I seen sick in the tank and a few hours she's floating on her side with bloat.

Added her to the tub with prime and water.

Sunday morning there was some sick in her tub still on her side.

Monday she went to the vet had an x-ray they found has some where in her not the stomach but an empty space. The vet drained it she was still a bit floaty but not as bad and not as bloated after they took it out.

Fast forward to night gave her anti biotics and anti inflammatories headed to bed woke up she's all swollen again. Back to the vet today they took the gas out she was perfect gave her the medication tonighr and she's swollen back up again 20mins after the meds.

Vet said she has a worm in her stomach that might be causing a blockage and hopefully she poos it out and that could be causing an infection. I'm thinking it could be something else

pH 7.2
Nitrite 0
Ammonia 0
Nitrate 15

Temp 18 degress at the highest.

ok it seems that the vet is doing the right thing. try feeding her blackworms for now. she will keep inflating for a little while but the anti biotics will help. remove the plant from the tub and make sure her skin doesn't dry out. also a bigger tub will help also a bubbler for more oxygen.

She won't eat anything atm. The bigger tub doesn't work it's too big that she flops about in a panick so smaller one is easier the plant is there so she can hold on to it incase she needs to bring her self up I have seen her hold on to it a few times.

Generally, I would advise not doing fridging unless necessary, but this is one of the circumstances that it might be very helpful. Sometimes a slight temperature drop helps them to poop. Other than that, I agree that it sounds like the vet's advice is what you should continue to follow. Watch for any new symptoms, but otherwise, just continue doing everything the same.

    I think it is always best to get them out asap but probably two days or so.

    its around 3 small pieces in the tank. Since i've just moved homes, my axolotl is still at my old house. Yesterday i fed him bloodworms and he missed a few. I couldnt get them out without a turkey baster and decided to let them sit because i was gonna move him to the house tomorrow. But now its late and I dont have a car and my dad wont drive me. Will he be fine?

    No, I havent. Im not really sure why he wont eat. Hes in a 1 gallon tub and still a juvenile. When i offer food he swims away from it. Does he need some extra time? or is this something I should be worried about.

    Hello everyone! I’m new in this world and i need some advices please! I have 2 axolotl babies and currently the water from the tank is from bottled water ( all parameters are good) but i want to change 50% of the water with city tap water. My question is how to change it? Do i need to get axis out, do the change, add the prime, wait (how much?) until its dechlorinated or i can add the tap water directly into the tank with axis in it, and add the prime conditioner? Thank you!!

    1. You dont need to take them out of the tank to change the water as long as you pour it in slow as to not rattle them around too much

  • Asmold1:
    2. add the prime to your tap water, for most conditioners the consensus is 5 minutes of waiting time
