    I was on vacation and my mom was taking care of my axolotl. Apparently his tail was stuck under one of his rocks and he darted into one of his hides, which is a tupperware with a hole cut for a door. I had silicone on there so that he doesn't scrape himself but it came off with. This happened two days ago, he has eaten since the incident.
    Is he going to be okay?
    I am going to take out his house and fix it up with more than silicone, but i am waiting for him to get away from it, he is easily spooked. His skin is still on the door way ):
    What can I do to help him heal?

    Lots of clean water with large and frequent water changes. Get him a better, safer house.

    I am aware that his house needs to be safer. Has anyone seen an injury like this? What do I do? He is eating and behaving as normal

    Keep water pristine, as I mentioned above. I wouldn't treat yet.
