Default Feeding regimen for juvenile?

So I've read conflicting information on how often to feed a juvenile (under 5 inches) axolotl. I've heard every day, and I've heard every three days.

Currently I've been feeding Dragon, my juvenile, every day- either cut up segments of earthworm, or bloodworms, or the occasional treat of brine shrimp. He doesn't eat much, but is nice and rounded in his belly. He poops regularly and is active, but I'm worried I'm feeding him too often.

Is this too often? Should I be feeding him every other day or every three days?

Sounds perfect. At under 5 inches, you can definitely feed every day.
