Nope. just watch and enjoy. Let the parents do their thing.

In a fews days after free swimming you can frrd them finely powdered flake food.

I fed mine Hikari first bites, first filling a little cup with tank water, then putting the food in, letting it settle and sink for a good 5 mintues, then scoop it up with a baster and shooting it directly over the fry.

But the package says to feed 4x a day. If they're with their parents, I don't know if I'd feed them that much, because their parents will ensure that the fry are well cared for. The father usually plunges himself in the substrate, stirring up all the uneaten food.
