You could try an easy to monitor tub. For the newly morphs ones you could put them in plastic containers with wet paper towels, a piece of cork to hide under, and some food. This will make it easier for them to find food, as they may have a hard time in substrate and may not want to take from your hands.

Also try more than blood worms, offer appropriately sized crickets, wingless fruit flies, and other worm types such as small earthworms and red worms which are similar but easier to find at smaller sizes. They may not want blood worms. If the blood worms are dead, it may stem to that many amphibians have motion based vision and eat when they see food move. I usually use small to medium sized north american land-dwelling salamanders such as slimy salamanders, mud salamanders, and dwarf salamanders.
