When do I know when I can stop feeding my axolotls bbs? Its been about 4 weeks and their front legs have grown in. Can I start feeding them live chopped up bloodworms now or not yet?

The only way you'll know is if you try. They are probably big enough now to take finely chopped up blackworms. Take the blackworms and toss them in a plastic cup, tip it slightly so all the worms are in a little pool by the bottom rim, and go mad with some scissors. That's the easiest way to do it.

If you use a razor blade, they can take chopped blackworms from the start.
