Default Feeding Issues?

I was just wondering what the ideal diet for tiger salamanders is. I have been having trouble feeding my two tiger salamanders. The previous owner of Salaman Grundy fed her nearly a hundred crickets a week, so she was obese when I got her. Iíve weaned her down to 30 crickets a week, but she isnít losing weight. I have tried feeding her worms, but they frighten her and she will not touch them. Any suggestions on helping her lose weight?

Toothless on the other hand isnít eating. He has only eaten 2-3 pinhead crickets since he morphed two weeks ago and Iím starting to get very worried. He wonít take worms either. Should I be worried? Is there a way to force feed him or should I take a trip to the vet?

Little Toothless has finally started eating again! The problem has resolved itself. But does anyone have any advice on helping Salaman to lose weight?
