If you strain (?) the daphnia and feed the ones that goes through your net (the tiny ones) - you can feed them to fry around 3mm.
But if you don't strain them - I'd say they're good for 5mm fry

i had wild daphnia living in the tank with my fry, the sneaky things were living in the condensation on the glass above the water line.

I think the OP was asking about live daphnia.

Gosh??? In my country nets come in 2 sizes - one with bigger holes and the other is rather fine and can catch daphnia - but not BBS. I don't know what they're called or their size names.

Try to approximate adult daphnia size and get a net small enough to catch them but large enough for daphnia young to go through.

Sorry I can't be more specific.
