Salt Water Black Molly Babies !!!!

A couple of weeks ago I got a Black Molly and acclimated it to my SW tank that I had prepared for my Goby/Pistol shrimp pair that are coming tomorrow....being told that the babies would make excellent food. Well, they were right....today, there are 20-30 Black Molly babies swimming around my 20 Gallon reef tank. They are between 1/4 and 1/2 inch long and are really adorable. The salinity is 1.026. I fed them some quality flake food with lots of veggies in it. Any other foods I should give them?

I would imagine some vitamin fortified brine and maybe some mysis would be good.

Thanks, Mike...makes good sense to me. Their mouths are so tiny.
I wondered if they would survive in SW...guess we got an answer..hope it's for a few days.
