Default Is my axie stressed?

Hey! I was hoping someone could help me out. Idk if I'm just a paranoid mom but my little girl's gill seem to be curled a bit. Again, it might just be me

Her gills have always been on the longer side, so that might play into it. I have filter with a spray bar angled at the back of the tank so there is barely any flow. I feed her just about once a day and do weekly water changes (20% of the water). I also fixed the lights so it isn't as bright for her. I think I've got this axolotl business down, I just wanna make sure she's as happy as she can be

I added some pictures of her too

Looks like a healthy little axie to me. :) If the gills are curled because of stress then they are very curled, like close to the eyes.

Thank you! I wasn't sure what to look for cause I'm a little new at this, and I haven't seen any pictures showing really curled gills. Much appreciated!

I'm just going to quickly second that she looks healthy to me. I'm no expert on axolotls but we have several at my work, and I have three at home. Your axie's gills look quite normal to me; various axolotls just seem to hold (or grow?) their gills at varying angles.
