You can but I had heard the food can be too big for some fry so try to give some other foods too.

I start mine with newly hatched brine shrimp-When the BBS are newly hatched they are not that big IME and my fry have never had any problems eating them from the first day of free swimming.

Not all brine shrimp eggs/cysts are created equal-I use the Azoo brand artemia cysts and the OSI brand and they seem small enough for the 3 day-week old Betta fry.
