Today is the feeding day where my axolotl gets his night-crawler instead of pellets but my question is when should i start feeding him whole night-crawlers instead of cutting them in half? He is about 5" and 6-7 months old. I just started giving his night-crawlers to help boost his growth.

The easiest way to find out is to offer him a whole one and keep an eye on the tank for a few days to make sure he doesn't regurgitate it. If he regurgitates it, keep feeding him pieces until he gets a bit bigger.

It really depends on what he will eat. My boy refuses to eat nightcrawlers unless they are cut up. Just test it and see.
