Default ADF laying eggs

I've had 5 adf for a couple of months in which time they have grown well.... feeding them the other morning I could see lots of eggs floating and a male hooked onto a female ( this burden didnt affect her appetite ) and thought to see to them after work, however on returning I could only find 9 eggs, which are now floating in a small jar in the tank... I've bought micro banana worms in case they hatch,and any tips would be gratefully received

Daphnia, even baby daphnia will be too big for them , collect greenwater from a pond, the microorganisms in it will be fine. Try culturing infusoria, add a potatoe to pond water, collect the infusoria from the potatoe with a turkey baster
