Just got this Super Delta 5 month old female last night. Her breeder was at the store and told me her age and bit about her lines. I did not notice any difficulties swimming at the store but it is hard to tell in those little cups.
Her tail is down and her head is up. She is pretty active still. Gave her one pellet last night and she ate it without issue and without hesitation. She is able to get to the surface for air but stays near the bottom, mostly. When she is laying on the bottom she turns onto her side.
Here is a video of her swimming: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uViMBfWYdhk
