Default Re: Best type of earthworms for axolotls?

I was hoping to breed worms for feeding. They say the red wrigglers aka compost worms are the best for this, but since they admit a foul tasting substance when unhappy, some of my axolotls do not like to eat them.

And unfortunately, I do not have a facility to keep Canadian nightcrawlers cool enough for breeding. I buy them in small amounts and keep them in my fridge for a treat.

Which is why I originally asked this question, to see if anyone had an alternative species to feed that would be good for breeding also. I should have stated that earlier. Unfortunately, the term "earthworm" is so broad and can pertain to so many species, it makes this question a bit hard sometimes.
