No...The fry will need to get the stimulates of live foods...Or they will decided not to eat the "nonmoving" foods..
You will need atleast one of the three..

Good. And I would only let her release about 4 times, as you dont want so many fry..
Are you going to use a growout tank?

Those worms have to ordered. I use them but I like Baby Brine Shrimp because they get the fry to grow.

Flakes can only be used starting at week 6 and they have to be very small peices. DONT OVERFEED FLAKES

Trying to put fry in a 10 gallon tank will kill them (unless it's a small spawn). Fry should be moved at around 5-6 weeks of age.

Black worms have three downsides.

1. Hard to culture: they require so much work such as rinsing them everyday etc

2. they're to big for a frys mouth

3. ever heard of dropsy? feeding these guys almost guarentees they will die from dropsy.
