Depends on the indiviual spawn. You should invest in a microworm culture..they're easy and last forever with minimal care.
Infusoria can only be fed for the 1st week, culturing is difficult and just by having live plants in the tank dosen't guarentee it's there.
BBS are my staple diet of choice for my fry. I feed them from day one to adulthood (especially in my conditioning period). Hatching is usually reliable but not always...another reason why a microworm culture is important (micros are bigger than you think and even adults can eat them).
Freeze dried foods should be avoided until adulthood. I begin feeding frozen bloodworms (not chopped up, fry will eat them whole) and frozen BBS.
Adult food should be crushed up into very fine powder and fed at around the one month mark (I reccomend starving the fry for a day or two and then they'll eat it).
Remember development is temperature and water dependent, 90% water changes and temps in the high eighties will get your fry to grow faster. This will speed up the process of what they can eat and when.
