Which cultures for food are best?

Some time in the future I would love to breed my bettas. For the moment though I'm just learning what I can about it. I've looked a little on ebay and seen various little cultures for brine shrimp and bloodworms. What do you guys use that work well?

Newly hatched brine shrimp and microworms are the best foods for fry.

I ordered my microworms on ebay. I payed 4.25 for them and they're doing great! Just to go ebay and type in microworms. I think it was like 2 something for the culture then the other 2 for shipping.

You can get Brine shrimp eggs at pet stores usually. I got mine at Thatfishplace, but of course, thatfishplace has EVERYTHING imaginable!

I've looked in all the pet stores lately and dont see anything like that, I can find the frozen stuff, just no eggs...
If I buy just eggs how should I go about setting up a culture?
