What can I feed my baby German Blue Rams?

My German blue rams laid eggs again. The last time the eggs hatched, but I had nothing for the baby to eat and they all died.

They are so small when they hatched?

What can I feed them?

Baby brine shrimp, micro worms, vinegar eels, daphnia etc....
Hikari First Bites, and finely powdered flake food can also be fed. Daphnia would be a little large for newly free swimming fry, but the microworms and newly hatched baby brine shrimp would be eagerly taken by them.
daphnia under 24hrs old are actually smaller than bbs....
I stick an old active sponge filter in the tank; I don't know what's on there but the tiny babies seem to find something!
