Premature fry

Hi this is my first post but I made this account cause I need help I have a female mostly black balloon molly and have for years we had kept one of her fry and recently bought more mollies well I noticed she was a bit bloated and was of course worried I turn the tank light off but quickly turn it back on to check something and there is the smallest fry I have ever seen now I have had fish for a long time and have raised many batches but these were ridiculously small and I have moved as many as I can to the baby tank but they wonít eat and are so small that if it was in your hands you wouldnít notice I think the mom went into labor early and had premature fry they are so small I am shocked they are alive I covered the outside of my filter with algae just so they wouldnít be sucked in and Iím freaking out cause they came out of no where and arenít eating anything I tried anything I had and most fry I have had ate almost instantaneous so and advice on care?? Please one was born a still birth molly and I want to keep the rest alive any help?

Dwarf shrimp food.

Hikari First Bites usually available from a lfs or Petco.

Boiled egg yolk cooled and grated into a fine powder.

I hope it works.
