Default Can't tell my axolotls apart! Afraid one is not eating, should I use an aquarium partition?

I just received two 10 month old axolotls about a week ago who are brothers. I cannot tell them apart, I've tried! One seems more active and is already used to me and eats very well, the the other is very shy and I'm not sure if he's eating. Is it a good idea to use an aquarium divider first of all to confirm if it's true that one is more active than the other (alternatively maybe they are both active but not at the same time?) and to ensure that they are both eating healthy amounts? Thanks in advance!

A tank divider won't hurt if you feel that's helpful for you :)

Hello,

Can I ask what and how are you feeding them? Could you just use tweezers or just each hand them an earthworm to see whose eating what? Or you could use a turkey baster and wait to see who eats.
