Axolotl Eggs, Larvae & Breeding Eggs everywhere, how did that happen? Will it be albino or wildtype?

Rep: AmberLouiseT has started on the right path
Arrow My two little Axolotl larvae. Can you check that they look normal, please?

Hello, sorry to bother you but I was wondering if any of you could tell if my two babies are 'normal' larvae.
They hatched early, and whilst in the post - the rest of the eggs went bad :/
They're still not really moving much except every once in a while, they twitch and swim a bit. The daphnia in there are tiny, and I'm wondering.. can daphnia be too small to attract the axolotl via movement?

OMG, they are so cute it actually hurts.
They look amazing.
I don't have any experience with larvae, but the information in the link below says that young daphnia are a good food source.

They are likely still digesting the egg sack so they won't be moving much. Give them a few days and they will feed on the small daphnia, just make sure there is plenty of daphnia available so they can always feed.
