Default Can Axolotls eat just earthworms ?

I have some adult axolotls that love to eat worms. Is it ok for them to only eat worms or do they need to feed on something else? Every so often I feed them brine shrimp. Do they need anything else in their diet ?

Everything I've read from the experts says that earthworms are a complete diet for axolotls. (Blood worms are not.) However, a varied diet is usually better, as long as it is a health variety. I alternate worms and carnivore pellets. And an occasional treat is OK, as long as it is a safe treat.
