OT Fry in QT tank *PIC*

Hey Guys I was checking out my Qt tank this am and found my praecox are producing FRY !!
This is my 15 gallon tall sump equipped planted tank.
I use it for qt'ing any new loaches. It currently has three small 1.5 inch Kubotais , 1 sae , 2 ottos and 1 M, 1F preacox rainbows.
I managed to get a pic of them after I caught three with a medicine cup. There were lot's of really small ones (more like eggs with tails). I have three now in a breeder net pen in the tank.
Here is the pic.
I'm really surprised they had not been eaten and managed to get to this stage.
Anyone have tips on feeding praecox rainbow fry?
