Default Feeding for juveniles and skinny adults?

I'm a little confused as to what each kind of lotl needs?

My adult who is of a good weight gets between 1-6 earthworms every other day.

However I have a very skinny adult I've taken into my care from someone who starved him and let him get bitten to shreds. I'll attach a picture of when we first got him and then a picture of now.. had him about a month and a half
He gets fed 3/5 earthworms a day and a wax worm once a week if we have them..
Then.. Click the image to open in full size.
Now..
Click the image to open in full size.

My juvenile gets 3/5 a day and maybe a cube of bloodworms if she/he won't take too many worms.. I'll attach a pic of her too.. is this enough or too much? I want her to grow to her capacity and not stunt her. Click the image to open in full size. her/his gills are funny as she/he had a little accident with a siphon 😖
We've had her about 2 months. She's about 7/8 months old?

As many worms as they'll eat in about 10 minutes. You can always leave a few live worms in a tank - they'll survive for days under water - so your axie can hunt and feed when they want to.
