Hi,

I hope you manage to get these guys better again. If it were me I would remove them from the tank into seperate containers to fridge them (incase it's constipation etc) and give that tank a good sort out. Remove all the substrate, a good water change (without destroying the cycle) and keep an eye on the levels for a while. Also earthworms would be a great option to try, if they can't manage a whole one cut it up and if they seem unwilling to take it try leaving it in their tub and seeing if a bit of privacy helps?

I'm not very experienced with axolotls yet but from having a lot of other tanks on the go throughout my life I have learnt a little, so that is all I have to offer!

Good luck x
