    So since my accident with my ammonia levels, i have been noticing my little guy has not pooped since about last friday. Ive been keeping very close eyes on him and i even cut back his feeding a little to see if he’d poop or itd just happen naturally and so far, absolutely nothing.

    It sounds awful but put him in the fridge for a day or two in a little container with enough de-chlorinated water to cover him and see if that helps. If not im not sure what to do im not that familer with axie's

    The floating is a sign of poop build up. If the problem continues, you can fridge him but I would give it more time as fridging is very stressful. If he ever begins to float completely, lower the water so that its feet can touch the ground. Besides that, just wait
