Will these raptor carnivore pellets be suitable for Axolotls? I am looking for 3mm pellets and I came across these. I have put up hikaris sinking carnivore pellets ingredients as a comparison as a lot of Axolotl keepers here in Australia seem to use them. Salmon pellets are not available to me here as no one seems to ship to Australia but I have added their ingredients too for reference. I really don’t know what to look for in ingredients so hoping someone can offer some advice here???

Also I currently feed my larvae and juveniles bbs, daphnia, mozzie wrigglers and blackworms (depending on Axie age) I’m only looking for a 3mm pellet that will take up 50% of their diet as juveniles when they get big enough to take them and for when my cultures may crash.

    My axie is acting woerd he was a rescue as stated in a different post he got better and now seems to be deteriorating again...again all tank conditions are OK and as should be. He seems to have some black dapple like pattern under his bottom lip? Is that normal? And his two back feet have a little wierd growth? Almost? Tiny tiny tiny lump. His capillaries in his feathers also appear darker and more visible. Any help would be appreciated
