Default Fermentation slowing

I am new to brewing and Instead of starting with a pure honey mead I decided on a peach malomel. I decided to put the fruit in after initial fermentation.

My question is my airlock has slowed down quite a bit it has not stopped but had me a little worried that it was to soon.

I used a dry yeast lavlin d-47,yeast energizer and nutrients and saving pectic enzymes till I add fruit.

Room temp is around 64-65

Is it normal to slow down so soon ?

Need to know some important things.
Batch size? Amount of honey used? OG? SG? When started? How much fruit did you add?
