Default Juvenile axolotls constipated?

Hi everyone I'm really hoping for your expertise I have 20 baby axolotls that are about a month and a half old that just the other day were started on frozen blood worm with that said I am now finding out that I was supposed to chop these bloodworms up and it appears many of them are backed up. I've been so great with keeping them in good care and feel now I have failed and I'm very worried about them. What should i do at this point?

Could you take some pictures?

I'd just not feed them for a few days and wait till they poo. My friend poured a load of 'blood worm' into his juveniles container and his juvey was backed up for most the week, then it was pooing blood worm for another week.

Think it just needs time to get out the other side

You should be fine then!
Just make sure you clean up any left overs asap as it can foul the water pretty quick.

I use a plastic syringe to clean my tubs up after feeding: http://www.myitchydog.co.uk/user/pro...ic-syringe.jpg

Well I'm back in the same situation more of the babies have decided not to eat and I don't know what I'm doing wrong. For the most part each baby is in its own dish and I am feeding them cut blood worm that was frozen then thawed and feeding it to them with a long pair of tweezers. Could they be refusing food due to being backed up.... is it safe to fridge them they were hatched October 31st.... please help I don't want these little guys to die
