Default Small issue with new fronts

Excited to say that I have added more colonies to my front collection

I have had them for a week and all are settling in well, apart from one.

When I received my WC Kitumba I though one of the females had float so did the float treatment, but now I can see that she just tumbles air and acts like she has float. I have seen her go up to the surface and grab air, tumble it for some time and release the bubbles. She keeps doing it over and over again. She is being picked on by others and has damaged anal and dorsal fin.

She is eating properly but not sure what else I should do to make it easier for her. Should I put her separately and let her heal? Any help would be appreciated.

Very common and very annoying. She will eventually stop. I have one girl that has been doing it for weeks - think she is going for a record or something. I would only pull her if the others beat on her to the point where she needs to be rescued.
