Default Should i fridge my axolotl?

My axolotl is only 3-4 months and he didn't poop for 1 week since i didn't see any poop in his aquarium for the past days. I heard that fridging him should help. Should i fridge him?

Is he floating or sitting with his backside up?

Okay it is possible that it is pooping and it's either hidden or been broken up by the axolotl. Check under decorations for poop and keep an eye out for little brown specks, they'll look like dirt. My axolotls love swimming through poop so it disintegrates and is very hard to siphon lol
You don't need to fridge at this stage. Keep an eye for a floating backside and loss of interest in food. What temperature is the tank kept at? Post a picture of your axie if you can as well :)

He looks so small! Lovely! The temperature is good. There could be poop hidden amongst the plants, I wouldn't worry right now. Let me know how he goes.
