Rep: reddead is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Floating

I got my axolotls 5 days ago, Lilo and Stitch! They both settled in very nicely. However, this morning I noticed Stitch had her tail and back legs up floating up towards the top of the water. She doesn't have any bloating that I can see and looks the same as when I got her. She had a worm today so she is still wanting to eat. What should I do? Shall I wait a few days or shall I try putting her in the fridge?

These are my first pair and I'm so worried about her.

Please help!!

Thank you, Ellie.

I replied to your message but it's good to see the photos! Like I said I think it might be gas or needing to poop. Keep an eye on bowel movements. How long are the axolotls?
