Rep: gfsward has started on the right path
Default Curled gills

Hey all,
This might just be over-worrying but figured better safe than sorry. I know that when an axies gills are forward that's a sign of stress. My axies gills are curling forward right now and I don't know why. I've done a couple water changes and double checked the temperature.
If someone could let me know what's going on that would be great.
Thank you!

Make sure the flow from your filter isn't too strong.
