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?

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.
