Default New lotl baby!

Hi all! I just got my new baby (about 4 inches) a couple of days ago. Her name is Gilly Golly McSquish. I love her so much! She has been pretty shy but just a few hours ago she started coming out of her shell. She swims up to the front of the tank to stare at me. She has the cutest little face! She's currently eating angle worms that I cut up for her, but she can be kind of fussy and only likes to eat them if they move a lot or else she loses interest. She's pretty thin so I tried to give her a waxworm that she ate but then spit up... so maybe ill try again later. She seems to like the angle worms okay though, are angle worms okay for them? She's in a 10 gallon right now and I keep the water temp at 66-68 degrees. She has a filter that has a spray bar and it seems alright, just kind of loud. I tried to look for sponge filters but I couldn't find any. Anyways, I just wanted to say hello to the community and was wondering if anyone could give me some general advice. Thank you and hello all!

Welcome! Gilly is really cute :) I think angle worms are good food to feed, they are nutritiously pretty well balanced.

Gilly is beautiful, and such a fantastic name.

I've attached links to all the areas that I used for research before getting my axolotls. It is a lot of information, but it's worth reading through as much as possible. As you have specifically mentioned feeding I have included the links to those articles as well.
Caudata Culture Articles - Worms
Caudata Culture Articles - Nutritional Values
Caudata Culture Axolotl Articles
Axolotls: The Fascinating Mexican Axolotl and the Tiger Salamander
Silly Axolotls

I have only had my gang for four months and have spent a lot of time on this forum gathering as much information as possible. There are a lot of very experienced keepers and breeder here, and they have an enormous amount of knowledge and experience, which they are happy to share.
I hope that the links are helpful. Please raise and concerns or questions that you have on this forum and please keep us posted on the progress of your little one, with lots of pictures please - we love pictures.
