Thumbs down Dark gray/greenish blobs

Hello,
I am a new axolotl owner. I have searched the forums for an answer to my question but have not found an answer.
I fed my axie last night and it (I haven't determined it's sex yet) and it ate just fine. This morning I observed it really swimming vigouresly around the tank (20 gallon) and on the top of the sand were two greenish/gray blobs. Can you tell me what they might be and should I be concerned? My first thought was sperm packets but they do not look like the photos that John C. has on his excellent website.

Thank you very much for your time.

What are you feeding your axie? I suspect there is nothing to worry about as the blobs may well be axolotl droppings!!

Thank you for your reply
I have been feeding it blackworms. If it is droppings this is the first that I have seen of them so whew, guess this means that it is ok.
