Both will do, although in my experience, the BBS is better. The advantage of the microworm is that they are cheaper and easy to maintain as a culture, whereas, the BBS has to be hatched daily.

Some fry simply cannot live on BBS as the BBS are too large and won't fit into their tiny mouths. Microworms are almost a necessity of SA cichlids. For livebearers, BBS will do just fine as will crushed flake foods.
