I've noticed now that mine's older and his gills are a little larger he doesn't go up for as much air as he used to. Perhaps your water is very oxygenated and your axie doesn't require it. Or they sneak up when you're not looking lol.

I drop worms around the tank to feed mine. He goes up for air so he can float around and sniff out his food. He seems to use gulping air more as a tool for hunting.
