I got my new Axie on Sunday (he/she is gorgeous) but it's not eating, I realise the move from the shop may have been stressful, but she doesn't appear stressed in any other way.... how long till I should start to get worried.
Nitrate, ammonia & nitrite levels are normal, pH 6.5, temp 18

The first night I offered him a prawn, the second a sliver of liver and tonight I have put some brine shrimp in (hoped the movement would tempt him) I haven't actually seen him eat but the shrimp seem to have depleted in number (unless they are all asleep on the bottom of the tank)

Brine shrimp die fairly quickly in fresh water. Without the removal of the dead brine shrimp, they will quickly foul the water. They're also not appropriately sized for adult axolotls. I suggest offering earthworms.
