generally the best is to breed your own brine shrimp and feed the fry baby brine shrimp. I've also heard of leaving hay in water and letting it decompose. Tiny critters will begin to live in the water and the fry can be fed that as well. Most stores will sell a processed food for babies though that is almost like a powder. One such one is FirstBites by Hikari. I have a friend who does the brine shrimp raising thing and has a lot of success but I personally have used processed foods and it worked well too.

I personally used egg yolk for the first few days and then a mix of baby brine shrimp and powdered flake foods until they are big enoguh for normal foods. Note thoguh that this was for cory fry, not betta fry, but I think the "rukes" will be pretty much the same.
