If they're swimming, they most likely can eat. I used crumbled up flakes to feed my convict fry.
Good luck, what are you going to do with all of them?

Yes, typically you should leave them with the parents. They will grow faster and be healthier.

Newly hatched brine shrimp is what you're going to want to feed. You can get a vile of it from your lfs. Just follow the directions on the pacjkage. You'll need a 2litre bottle, an air stone and some salt. I use a light bulb for heat for the hatchery.
