I'm going with Cliff here, no heater. As you say there is a buoyancy issue probably due to trapped gas. There is evidence that internal bacteria in the axolotl's gut (maybe 'feeding' off a recently ingested meal) can create excess gas. Whilst warm water would enhance the rate of digestion, it would also enhance bacterial activity.
