Unhappy Keeping a few fry alive please help

Long story short for those that dont know I was working on a CT breeding pair that went wrong basically the decoy female i had got out ( still no idea how) and breed to my female now she is a doubletail so now I have this weird spawn of CT DBT (excuse me if this is the wrong abbreviation lol) in any case I was planning to cull anything that want remotly close to having great fins however I have come to notice that I have a total of 5 fry.... at least thats all I can count. I know that there are always more then you can see but this is the lowest number free swimmers I have ever had. In any case the few that live ( I am almost sure daddy got hungry) I want to stay alive as they transition to eating the food I feed them. They are in a barebottom tank and today is their third day on the planet and I just removed daddy. The are all hiding in the java moss but are not interested in the microworms I put in there for them. I am worried it wouldnt be much of a loss but rather disappointing if I lost them. Should I go buy some bbs for them? I did a 50% water change today for them also. I really want to keep these few guys alive thats why I started a new thread... any ideas?

Definitely give them a chance. With so few it should be possible to find them homes. They will be fine eating microworms for awhile though. You don't need BBS immediately.

I just feel like they have no interest in them, are they just traveling down to the bottom when I'm not looking to eat or are they not interested in them at all? The micro worms will fall by their face and they still dont respond to them? And I do want to give them a chance the females I can always keep and with such few males then they will be easy to home.

Make sure to syphon out what they don't eat or the uneaten food will foul the water.
