So now he appears healthy but he still won't eat. Suggestions? He hasn't eaten in over a month from what I can tell. He is given food but he ain't eating. Pic attached to show weight. He is given pellets that a seller made. He has been given them since I have had him.

Considering he hasn't eaten for a month he is still looking very good. His stomach is around the same width as his head, which is the general rule for a healthy axolotl. I can understand your concern about the feeding though.
I have attached a link listing different foods and their approximate nutritional values. Earthworms are certainly the way forward as soon as possible as they are the best main diet.

Best of luck and please keep us posted on your progress.

He ate half a worm today. Maybe he just needed the stimulus from it wiggling.
