I purchased an axolotl back in May and was told he/she was 2 months at the time. All the limbs were formed. Now that he/she is approximately 4 months old , it’s not nearly as large as others I’ve seen this age (I would say mine is 2.5 inches long) I’m looking for any tips for feeding and care to help them grow !
Thanks

I feed blood worms as advised by the breeder till it is older.

I tried putting no sand at first and he didnt want to Walk. What do you mean by impact easier ? Should I remove the substrate ?

Bloodworm is only 6-9% protein and your axolotl need 40-46%

Please look at getting live blackworms or cut up red wrigglers or repashy grub pie or Omega One Newt & Salamander or Zoomed Aquatic Newt pellet or rangen moist sinking pellets are awesome as well

If your axie pukes up the red wigglers, don’t panic. Some axies hate the taste of their slime coat. I just used to cut mine after the clitellum, since the brain and things are stored above the clitellum😃

    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
