Just feed them 2-4 times a day on really crushed flake food. Also if you can move them to another empty tank.

Oh you don't have to. I only suggested another tank since it gives them growing room. I don't move my fry but some people do. They can be released into the main tank at about 1 inch long.

To an extent, I suppose- they will eat microorganisms and such that live on the moss, but they do not eat the moss itself. You really should be feeding them or they might starve.

Well it depends the setup youve got them in. I think if you feed them 3-4 times a day they tend to grow quicker.I also think that given more space they grow quicker. Remember to vary their diet and feed them live and frozen foods. I wouldn't just feed them moss.
