Rep: Deadpixels is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Re: What do you feed your axolotls?

I plan on feeding my lil guy (when I get him home) canadian nightcrawlers (easily available here in Nova Scotia), and frozen brine shrimp cubes and frozen bloodworm cubes.

Pellets are harder to come by here. I can't find any at the LFS. I wanted Hikari Sinking Carnivore Pellets, but alas, no luck. I did find Nutrafin Bug Bites Cichlid Pellets. Does anyone know if these are okay? They're for cichlids, yeah. But the primary ingredients are Black Soldier Fly Larvae and Salmon. There's other stuff in them too though, like Green Peas, Potato, Wheat. I wouldn't think those are any good to feed them. Fat content Fat Content 12.5% and Crude Protein (min) 40.0% and some vitamins. Opinions?

Petsmart link to Bug Bites

I can probably find the hikari stuff online, but shipping is always a killer for me.
