Rep: weepwoop is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Droopy gills?

Iíve had my axolotl for about a month now, and since Iíve had him Iíve noticed his gills have a little droop. Not all of them, the top and bottom gills are fine, itís just that the middle ones stick out instead of up. Heís always had this, so it isnít new. All his tank levels are good, and he hasnít lost his appetite. So whatís wrong? Is he sick? They arenít curled in so he isnít stressed. Please help me out!
