when they are newborn to about an inch long they do great on baby brine shrimp, but will eat crushed flake or microworms also. Once they are a little bigger they can start eating .5 mm pellets and as they get bigger just upgrade the pellet size.

When they are still tiny they tend to eat better when their food is wiggling, plus it doesn't foul the water up as much since the food is alive. As far as frozen goes, I don't feed it to fry, never saw a need.
