My Axolotl won't eat pellet anymore. They only eat frozen or live food now but the cost is way too expensive since I have 4 Axolotl so I can't keep them like that. Anyone know how to make them eat the pellet again

If you set yourself up with a worm farm you won't have to buy food - you'll be able to breed your own.

You can get over your fear and grow worms, buy them live/frozen food, or give them to someone that can manage them... You don't really have more choices. They aren't supposed to eat pellets and feeding them only pellets will make them weaker and more likely to get sick and need medication and more expensive stuff later on. They need the variation in food items...
One other thing you could do is raise feeder guppies, but you need something to keep them in, like a tank with a filter, or a bucket... or rubbermaid storage tub... and they might smell too if you don't keep it nice and clean...
Those are the only options I can think of...

    @ChocoUniversa, Buy some ammonia and an eyedropper from Walmart and a water test kit for ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates. Figure out (through testing) how many drops it will take to get the ammonia level to the test's maximum measurement. Add that same number of drops every 24 hours. Eventually, the ammonia will start to go down as it's converted to nitrites. Keep adding ammonia. The nitrite levels will spike for a while and then they too will start to go down as they convert to nitrates. These you get rid of by doing water changes, which you should be doing anyway throughout the process. Once all of these are at low levels, your aquarium is ready. It takes about a month, maybe two (mine took a month and a half). Be sure to add ammonia until the day of or the day before you add your axolotl.

  • Kmia_13:
    Hey guys, this is my first time using this so bear with me. I have an adult axie who looks like he’s developed some fungus on gills. It’s still really small and only on one part. I put him in a 10 gal quarantine tank with an Indian almond leaf. I want to give him a black tea bath but not sure if I can add my black tea to the tank with the Indian almond leaf in there. Any advice?

    Should I fridge therapy and salt wash? or will this not be wise when she is morphing.

    @BChen3695, what are your parameters and temp? The fact that they're raised bumps could indicate fungus or bacterial infection.
