Yeah they should be ok with ground up flakes
I had Platys once and she was pregnant but i didn't have a breeder and one day i got up and she had obviously given birth during the night as of course she wasn't fat anymore,i could not see anything so thought they had eaten them,about a week later i saw 1 baby and when i fed othe platys i would grind up some flakes for baby to a fine powder,then my daughter happened to look in tank and found 3 more !!! I just kept putting extra ground flakes so they could get some and they grew fine.that was quite a few year ago now ...good luck

Yup. I just put a good but of flake food in a plastic Baggie and I crush them up, like into an almost powder. That's what I did with my fry and their still growing
