Thanks guys. I am feeding many foods but the fry are not eating my offerings for any length of time. They have not lived past a couple of weeks so far. Every spawn is split into small groups of a few individuals each for food testing. Some groups are setup in feeding rings with the fine mesh bottom to test specific foods and some are tried in 15 gallon tanks with different type long established (6 month) fishless biotopes for more natural offerings. I had great hopes for the tanks. But even with all that volume for three tiny fry, no improvement so far. The fry are robust enough and do move around a fair amount so my offerings are just not acceptable yet. I still have some food ideas for the next batch and will also try three more biotopes that are different.
