    What kind of fry are they? A good starter food for fry is Hiraki first bites you can also boil an egg and give them a toothpick tip ( very tiny amount ) worth of egg yoke. There are many other options but i've used those for guppy and molly fry. Also if you crumble flakes till it turns to dust between your fingers they will be able to eat some of that. Good Luck!!

    Crushed flake or whatever is left from bigger fish will work probably..
    You might want to add some floating plants for fry to hide in ?

    They will pick tiny particles out of the water and you will probably not even be able to notice. Also with them sitting by the filter tiny particles floating around in the water will feed them as well.
