Guppy fry food

I have guppy fry that were just born today. Is crushed flakes once a day good to feed?

Crushed flakes is fine to feed them however for them to develop right you should feed them 3-4 time a day just a pinch you don't want to over feed them but they should be feed more than once

I fed mine a mixture of dried shrimp, blood worms, and flakes. Basically whatever I have available at the time I throw in my little blender/copper/whatever ya want ta call it and grind it all up. My fry seem to grow at the same rate with the mixture as they do with the flakes. I've tried it both ways and have the same growth with both types of food.

Live foods are best but prepared foods are just fine, guppy fry aren't picky.
