What to feed CPD fry?

I just spotted about 14 fry in my "breeding/shrimp" tank. What all do you feed the new mini guys? I have a micro work culture on the go but they look to be to big for the little things. any suggestions?

Have you tried "First Bites"?

First bites may be too big if they are under 3 weeks old. I used golden pearls with much success.

Well i found first bites, which i added a few/ I started some "green water" but it takes a good 5 days. I have also notices some little copepod on the glass so hopefully they are able to eat those tiny things for now.
