how do you know the tetras laid eggs? They are scatterers so they are usually hidden in the substrate. Are you sure the rams didn't lay eggs?

Sure, you could use them as feeders. Livebearer fry are the best for that since they are much easier to breed, plus they are much larger than most egglayer fry.
