If they're fronts, mouths are big enough for small pellets at that size. A nice thing about NLS is the different size pellets they have, including fry sized pellets. But you could also start them on flakes for a bit. My general program with the fish I've bred, including fronts, is new fry start out with crushed up flake and/or crushed up freeze dried brine shrimp. Freeze dried brine shrimp, when dry, can be crushed up to powder pretty easily. Then crushed pellet bits, then regular flakes and/or small pellets... and so on as they grow.

Great. I've fed NLS to my Reef tanks for years.
