Rep: Leahslooloo is an unknown quantity at this point
Default New owner feeding help

Hi there new to this site. I got my axolotl from a lady the other day he is 4 years old and she has been feeding him a cube of frozen bloodworm twice a day. But from research I've done apparently earthworms are better for them. I was wondering are earthworms from our local fishing tackle shop OK for lottie to eat?
Also is twice a day too much as from what I researched some people only feed every other day:-/ also is it OK for lottie to eat the bloodworm as a frozen cube as I've red contradicting things about this. He does hand feed as soon as I hold the cube of frozen blood worm in he takes the lot whole still frozen:-/
Sorry for all the questions and thanks in advance for you answers :-)

Frozen food must be defrosted before feeding. Worms are best, I suggest you order from Yorkshire Worms - good worms at reasonable prices.
