Micro worms might be a little large for your fries at this stage IMO.

You can also use boiled egg yolk (the yellow part) to feed your fries. Take a very small pinch of yolk and mash it in a teaspoon of water till you get a yellow fine liquid. You can use a filler and feed 2-3 drops of this liquid 3-4 times a day.

I have raised my gourami fries from 0-2 weeks with nothing but this. Only downside is you need to do pwc every 2-3 days so any uneaten food won't spoil.

The Fry's will not consume hikari first bites IMO cause its not live food.
For first 2 week keep them on infusoria,egg yolk and microworm.
After then you can start live babybrine shrimp.
And then pellets.

I read somewhere that there are thousands of microworms in first 2 inches of the garden soil and can be collected by a potato with a half inch hole in it.keep it under soil for a week and then wash it and take the worms out with a ear bud,dump them in your culture.
I tried this once and got the worms too,but they didn't survive in my culture.
You can try it.

I have had a different experience with Hikari first bites. These are very slowly sinking flakes and are ideal for free swimming fries. I am not sure if fries would care about live food or not, may be experts can comment. At least for me, first bites like the name suggests, is a handy first food for my fries, while I take time to arrange other varieties.

Its preferable for fishes like angels,but betta Fry's need live food in their initial stages of growth.they consume the food that wiggles in water.other Fry's like guppies prefer live and dead both.

Are you sure about this? Very interesting fact. I have raised gouramis from hatchlings to fries, but I used to feed them baby brine shrimps only from the 3rd or 4th week onwards. I know live food is far superior to others but didn't know they could be a must for some fries, at least for those bred in captivity. Wild breds could be a whole different story.

Also, since bettas an anabantoids like gouramis, I assumed the fry care wouldn't be so different food-wise. I guess I need to read up more on this. Thanks Pratik :)
