Question sluggish behaviour

My axie is acting a bit odd tonight...
She is a 6 month old leucistic who shares her tank with another axie of around 3 1/2 months of age. Had her now for 3 months and had no major problems . She fed ok this evening on prawn but seems very sluggish and not herself. Its almost as if she is drunk. When she swims its very slowly and she just seems to sway with no control. Also her mouth is slightly agape which is not usual for her. Yet the other axolotl is fine, ate well, responsive when I sat next to the tank. Is this another one of those weird "she just needs a poo" moments or should i be worried...its really not like her at all....
My husband suggested she is just having an "off day", do they get those? Any help/advice much appreciated.
Becky

A little to full maybe. After a big meal I like to be lazy.

Mine had a day like that a couple of weeks ago and was still eating, but seemed "off". Got me really worried, but came good the next day. I think it was part of the learning curve.

Talking

Yes, they are very strange sometimes Lisa. I find myself worrying about them like they were one of my kids, I've got so attached to them...But now she is fine so it was just an off day i think or maybe PMT lol
