You can buy starter cultures for vinegar eels, micro worms, and whatever else you want to feed live online . Same goes for brine shrimp eggs. You have to feed them when they have just hatched... So from the time they hatched, they are good to go for twelve hours. Air pumps reduce waste greatly. Hatcheries for BBS, micro worms, and vinegar eels are easy! You can look it up online... There are tons of youtube videos showing you how to start them! You should get live plants, because they produce infusoria which helps feed the fry!

Hope this helped!

the air pump is to run a sponger filter so you can filter the water and provide oxygen.

Live food you can buy online on ebay or on here. I sell them too. hatchery u can make with a soda bottle.

For brine shrimp I think you cut a two liter soda bottle in half and screw the lid on tight then add aged water and a small air pump? Something like that... For micro worms you can check out this vid: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=KXV1GmEiixY
For infusoria TRY to watch this: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=vkOw7AO-Il0
If they so not work, a lot of people make youtube tutorials on this sort of stuff... If you don't want to watch a video, just search something like "how to start a micro worm culture" something should pop up! Hope this helped!

Now, I saw this on yahoo answers, so it's probably not correct. Would taking a small peice of hard boiled egg yolk mixed with just a little water ( so it's like a paste) be ok? For fry

Yes it would, but fry might not go for it.. They are picky, only liking love foods most times. You could try that.. Although I would have a backup just in case they don't eat it! The micro worms would be best, along with infusoria and vinegar eels. BBS are ok.. Sometimes they are easy to over feed and may cause swim bladder issues!

I would stick with the micro worms, because while many people has good experiences with the yolk, it tends to foul the water pretty quickly, and you have to do more water changes.
