You can't go wrong with the ol' stand-bye: brine shrimp eggs (or newly hatched). Feeding the parents enough should also allow them to "chew" their food into little fry sized bits - as long as they are chewing in the vicinity of the fry. I've also used crushed New Life Spectrum, crushed flake food and those Hikari Tiny Bites with great success.
I picked up some freeze dried cyclops, decapped BS eggs, and freeze dried mysis shrimp. I am raising some fry on just powdered freeze dried mysis shrimp and finely crushed flake foods, but I think the freeze dried cyclops will work well for really small fry for a few days before they can move up to something a little bigger.
