Wild Betta frys

Hey guys I notice that wild Betta frys are much smaller then regular show Bettas frys. So what is smaller then microworms that I can find to feed them?

Vinegar eels are smaller I believe but more of a stomach filler than anything. I believe banana worms are also smaller than MWs and not sure on walter worms.

However, I have some tiny wild betta fry and they have been able to take MWs almost from day one (they also fed on infusoria in the tank). Have you tried giving them some MWs and seeing how they go? I've found fry can fit a surprising amount of food in their mouths without choking or having to spit it back out.

Here is a great video on culturing Infusoria.
I tried a bunch of different ways,some worked ok and some did not.
I sat this up about a week ago,checked it today and, I had a few thousand Infusoria(at least)!
Hope it works as good for others as it did for me.

Allen Rapashy (and others) recommends his "Meat Pie" (powdered) food for small fry.
