Feeding fry?

I've got jewel fry and they're TINY!! What can I feed them?

I've crushed flakes into dang near a powder and it's still too big.

What do you guys feed your wee little ones?

First Bites, decapsulated brine shrimp (soak them in water for 5 -10 minutes before feeding), walter worms are also good choices. These are the primary things I feed them until they are big enough to start adding more things to their diet.

What kind of fry are you feeding?
And what brand of first bites?
