Exclamation Just got new axolotl NEED HELP not eating

My axolotl just arrived in the mail two days ago and since then he has not eaten. Iím trying to feed him small cut up night crawlers but he wonít eat them. Heís about 3 or 4 inches long. Iím really panicking here I donít want him to starve or anything. His teperature is about 68 -69 degrees and the filter is on low flow. Thank you for any help on why heís not eating,

well, I can't say for sure for sure if this is the case, but sometimes it can take them a bit to settle in. the stress of being in transit and such. is he showing other signs of stress like curled tail and gills? And are you able to tell us your water parameters aside from the temperature?

Y'see? They need a little time in a new tank, but if the conditions are good they settle in and start eating
