Guppies had Babies, What to feed?

My guppies had babies and I managed to get about 7 in a net breeder. I need to know if I should completely move them into a smaller tank or leave them in there and what exactly I should feed them.

You can move them or leave them but you can feed them crushed flakes , brine shrimp or micro bacteria.

I feed my fry a crushed mixture of shrimp pellets (my guppies love them), flakes, and dried shrimp. I put it all in a zip lock bag and used a rolling pin to crush them till its a powder, my fry have been growing like crazy. When they were born I had given three fry to a friend of mine and she feeds them crushed flakes and mine are twice the size hers are

I find the easiest way to crush flake food is to put a little in container (like a little old fish food container) and al ittle water and swirl it. in 30 seconds you have tiny flakes
