Hi, My axie has really dark red gills. Is this normal? Ive also noticed him floating a lot and wanting to stay near the top of the tank. Plz help. Thanks.

How old is it? What are you feeding? How big is it? What are your water parameters (ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, temperature)? What kind of tank setup do you have?
