Question Axolotl Isn't Pooping

Hello everyone! I have to lovely axolotls that are about 5-6 months old. They used to poop A BUNCH (at least once a day). Recently, they haven't been pooping. One of them pooped a few days ago, but one of them hasn't pooped in a week and a half. I don't know what to do. I heard that fridging stresses them out. What should I do? Also, should I keep feeding the one that hasn't pooped in a really long time? I'm worried he's gonna have a lot of pressure built up in his stomach. Help!
FYI I'm feeding them either 2 red wigglers each daily or 1 nightcrawler each daily. Thank you!
