Default PLEASE HELP ! my axolotl hasn't been eating the last few days

Okay so my golden albino axolotl hasn't seemed interest in food the last few days . i feed him earthworms i have tried feeding them whole and cut up but he still won't seem to eat them . Im unsure if he just doesn't like them or if they are too squirmy and it freaks him out . I also have aquatic sand as my substrate and every time he bite into something from the ground he ends up spitting it out with a whole bunch of sand could that be why he hasn't been eating ? he is 7 1/2 inches long and people tell me they have fed their 5 in Aries full earthworms . should i try frozen blood worms and if there are any other good alternatives what should i try?

I have always just fed mine frozen bloodworms. They come in cubes. I also feed them fish that has been frozen and I just cut off small pieces. I always feed them by hand. So as soon as I put my hand in the tank they know it's feeding time. I have also given them baby earth worms after it rains they come out of the grass and I save them! Tonight I tried dehydrated river shrimp that I rehydrated. They ate it but I could tell it wasn't their favorite.
