Default HELP!! Food Salamander larvae metamorphic!

Hello all guys
A few days ago my salamander larvae are on the ground.
They live in a container with a cap moss and fresh water .
My question is that I do not get food for them ... Even eat nothing .
I can offer feed them?
I read salamander care , but do not eat anything ...
I thought about grindal or enchytraeids . What opinion do you have?
thanks to all

I recommend getting springtails or flightless fruit flies to start.

They move alot and entice feeding response more so than grindals or other worm variants.

There are quite some suggestions there for any age of salamandrae.
You can use very tiny house crickets, as suggested there, or very tiny earthworms, or quite some other things you can find in this article.

May I ask what species or subspecies the little guys are (just out of curiosity)?

Well done javat.
In my experience I'd go for the non/flying fruit flies.
I'd place a tea spoon of banana mash or some chopped over ripe apple on a jam jar lid and put this on the base of the enclosure. I find the flies are less likely to wander off and they congregate about the fruit making them easy for the little salamanders to prey on them. It won't be long before they are on to 1st and 2nd instar cricket. Flightless fruit flies will still wander and can climb up the enclosure and escape through the smallest of spaces. Once they are a few weeks I give them 2-4mm segments of earth worms. Not the smelly ones. If you are unsure, just stick them under your nose. This size segments still move and attract the salamanders. To keep these segments as fresh as possible and for upto a day maybe, I finely mist the cage to stop them drying out. At this stage though, my priority is to get the little ones feeding.
