Still no eating today (check previous threads)

I decided to check my tap.
What do the levels look like to you?
I see between 0.25 & 0.50ppm
I do not ever recall having ammonia in my water. (Not well water, city water)

SO, I am going to buy gallon jugs of water to see if that changes anything.

Trial and error I guess.

In order to give appropiate advice, a few questions:
Do you have a picture of your tank?
Could you post all of the water values here after doing a water test?
Does the tank have plants in it and if so which plants?
How many times a day do you feed your Axotl?

This is a question about my tap water, not my tank.

In the area where I'm from there is no ammonia in the tap water, it's forbidden to clean the water with chemicals. You could check the website of your water distributer and check how they clean the water and what the maximum amount of ammonia in their water is. Not sure if that info is public in the US, it is here.

I think I can find out.

    I currently have a 3 year old axolotl, he hasn't been eating for the past couple of weeks and has lost a lot of weight. Hedwig usually eats bloodworms and earthworms just fine but now he won't even stud it. I've done a water change to make his nitrate lower and his water is at a good temperature

Also if anyone could tell if it’s a boy or girl that would be great! (Zolo was eating a worm and pretty sure the worm pooped XD)
