Default Floating Axolotl

Hello everyone.

I am a new axie owner and have had my little guy, Lotl, for a few weeks now. He's been doing great but recently started floating slightly to his side. He swims and is able to get to the bottom of his tank if he wants to and is eating well. I've been cleaning his tank every two to three days. I spoke with the person I purchased him from and they say he may have an air bubble. I was advised to move him to a smaller container with less water to see if it helps him. I'm really nervous and would really appreciate some feedback from people who have had this issue before. Thank you.

How big is it ? Floating can often be a sign of too high a temp or poor water quality
