No you don't need liquid foods for fry.

You can feed them crushed flakes. Just squish the flakes before you feed them. Good luck!

Also Hikari makes a fry food called first bites, works great, as they got older I mixed the combination with the food the adults were getting as a transition.

Over time there will be so many you might not know what to do with them! lol so don't fret!

+1 on the Hakari First Bites. I started using this, i've really noticed the difference with this food. I used crushed fish crisps before. First bites is like powder, my fry go mad for it. They're 2wks old today and had their first bloodworm's today. One accidentally fell into the fry trap and they went mad for it. So i threw a few more in, gone in seconds!!. Can't do any harm right??

Are they free swimming in the main tank or have you got them in a breeding trap/net

They are some lucky little fry, a whole 29g just for them!!. Cycled i presume, have you put a sponge sleeve or some tights over the filter pipe. Stops the little fellas getting sucked up if they get too close...
