Discus fry diet

A friend and I picked up a dozen discus fry that are 2 months old (about the size of a thumb nail). The breeder said he's been feeding them "a lil bit of everything" so that people buying them wouldn't have problems with stubborn or picky fish. They are eating but I want to know what discus enthusiasts are having good results with. Give me any or all ideas. Thanks!

Im no discus expert but i would feed them NLS pellets the smallest you can find. Could try high quality flakes. Also could try bloodworms every once in a while.

I would say just a variety of fine foods. Chop up some bloodworms grind some flakes feed them a variety like the breeder did

New Life Spectrum Grow then transition to 1mm Thera, Cichlid, or Discus formulas.
