One red cherry shrimp died which i put in a box with live tubifex, then i saw the tubifex were covering the dead shrimp. Now my question is can i still feed these tubifex to my newts ? I just bought the shrimp 5-11 days before it died. the others are doing ok, i bought the shrimps from 2 different sellers so im not sure how many days ago i bought that one.

I added a picture, could you tell me what the yellow things on the moss ball are ?

Those yellow things look like eyeballs but I'm not sure where the nose and mouth are. (This is funny).

The yellow things look like some kind of midge larvae.
It is not a good idea to use dead animals as food for your food for the salamanders.

Looks like a newly molted tubifex worms, are those little guys moving?

I love that you labeled the comedic level of your comment.

    @Jokerjay, as in water dogs do you mean axolotls? i suggest very heavy research and a fully cycled tank before even considering purchasing one

    Axolotls are amazing until they get sick and then they’re a pain in the backside to treat - I recently lost two axolotls due to unknown causes

    i highly recommend “buyanaxolotl.com”- ive purchased from them and received a beautiful animal for relatively cheap, in great condition, and excellent shipping precautions. the breeders are a couple living in georgia (i believe, don’t quite remember) and they’re fantastic. sometimes their website contact page doesn’t work, so i’d probably try just emailing them. good luck and happy hunting!
