Default Axolotl

Hey all, just have a quick question regarding my Axolotl. He/she is still very young, and only about 4 inches long. I noticed today that it's stomach seems a bit bloated and red, as well as a very distinctive white spots along it's body. I'm including a picture for better reference. Any input would be greatly appreciated!

Mmmmm I have no certain answer .... I read somewhere that they’d prone to ingesting gravel so I keep mine on bare glass ..

Maybe have a Google ??

Yea I would say it has sucked up gravel and is struggling to pass it. I always recommend to keep them on bare bottom or sand.

Thank you for the advice! I have an empty 40 gallon tank that i'll set up for him. Any thoughts on the white spots along the belly? Simple coloration or a possible issue?

Try and keep the temps as low as possible in these warm times
