Exclamation Food help! Urgent

Hi my BBS hatchery crashed this morning due to my air pumps failure.... Anyways i dont really have an emergency food for them other than freeze dried fairy brineshrimp..... Theyre currently eating this right now but not alot and i dont think this is very nutrious.... I have ordered live daphnias and frozen bloodworms but i wont recieve them till thursday... Is there any food i could offer them until theyre food comes??? Im really nervous because i dont want them to die.. Ive heard of people feeding them hard boiled egg yolk but im not really sure about it...
Any advise will be appriciated
PS. Theyre ~2cm

You can chop up bits of nightcrawler (this might be too gross if you're squeamish) into bite-size chunks. You're right, the freeze-dried stuff isn't very nutritious.

At that size, as long as they're healthy and kept cool, they probably won't starve to death in just a few days.
