Default Please help me!!

Ookayso my axie, Pablo, hasn't eaten in 3-4 days, im not sure how old he is but i think hes around 6-8 months, and hes still really skinny even though i feed him every day he'll eat for me.

i do weekly/fortnightly waterchanges of his tank, and feed him crickets, steakand beef heart occasionally.
im really worried about him because i don't want him to die.
does anyone know what could possibly be wrong with him or am I just over reacting?

Feed him earthworms. The reason he is so skinny is because he's not getting the right nutrition. Worms, slivers of raw fish, maggots, raw shellfish. NO mammalian meat.
