Exclamation Feed egg yolk on friday...but I dont know if the fry ate any..

I feed my baby fry (which hatched on thurs.) egg yolk but I dont know if they have eaten any...The male is in there because I am afraid they will die without him. He is being a good dad by picking them up and blowing them into nest. I will take him out, but I need to know what to feed them so they wont starve. They are to small for microworms....and I dont know where to find bbs.
Please help..

Many have bright bellies of white showing that they have eaten. But others seem dull and with low energy

If they're not free swimming, dont feed them, they have to be able to get to the food.

bbs eggs can be found at your lfs

fry can eat microworms starting at day 3.

I dont know what you could do, infurosia would wor but it would take too long to make, does your tank have live plants in it because that should make enough for them to survive until microworms or other. I dont know if it would work but maybe if you bought some live plants and poured some of thier water in there it would have infurosia on it to feed them. If some of them are eating I guess its ok, I mean it is survival of the fittest isnt it?

As for cleaning I heard to take air-pump tubing and use it as a siphon to get it out, thats is if the fry are big enough to see so you dont suck them out.

I have live plants...They are producing snails so I am sure they are producing infurosia....
Nepolean is now picking them up and blowing them into the nest. They are all moving well when he does this. Oh my mother is going to get a filter right now to help purify and clean the water to help them out a bit.......I am just a little worried...Okay very worried. I dont want to mess anything up...
