It says the food is "disks", which doesn't sound like the right size/shape. The ingredients seem OK, although a product aimed at fully carnivorous fish would be better.

Have you heard of Rangen salmon pellets? Use the forum search to find out more.

I don't think bottom feeder pellets would be good for an axolotl because they're carnivores. I feed my axolotl sinking carnivore pellets and you can get them for around $10 at your local pet store.
