Default Axolotl babies

My babies started hatching Dec 13th 2011. I am in need of advise in what to feed them. I first used daphnia pulex and frozen tubiflex worms, then moved on to daphnia magna (using only the baby ones) and frozen daphnia. Now I am using daphnia monia babies. What else can I use to feed these baby axolotls?? I am at a loss.....? I have about 100 babies left and they are hungry. Thanks for any help. Laura

my first thought was baby brine shrimp but then I see they are almost a month old. Not sure of their size but maybe chopped up blood worms, small sinking soft trout pellets, maybe you could chop those up.

I am sure there will be others along that will point you in the right direction.

You may want to add how big they are at the moment. Maybe a pic or two.

Best of Luck

Thanks Jason! My babies are about 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch long. I am trying to send a picture.

I would hatch out some baby brine shrimp to feed them. While they are hatching, could take up to 2 days, you could chop up the blood worms really fine.

YouTube is a good resource on hatching baby brines.

Cute little guy!
