Question Caring for 2 inch axolotl?

I've recently bought a baby axolotl that will be around 2-2.5 inches. She/he will arriving Wednesday and I would like some advice for caring!
I think I've already got the basics down. No sand for the axolotl until it's bigger than 3 inches is what I've been told. I didn't expect to be buying one when it was so young, but I fell in love with the little guy! What I'm mostly concerned about is what to feed it. Would very small earthworms be alright? I know people recommend frozen bloodworms, but my access to them readily is limited. I'm assuming small enough earthworms maybe some daphnia would be fine
Any help and advice is very much appreciated!

I think earthworms might be fine at that size, just chop them up nice and small. I haven't used daphnia so can't say much about that. Once you get the little axie make sure to post a picture :)
