I currently have artemia cultures but am interested in some alternative live food options. What do you use?

For angels, freshly hatched BBS. After about 10 days I begin to add frozen cyclops and reduce the live. over about a week they adapt and live is not needed any longer. I did not spawn them for long since I got over a 100 fry/spawn and that was way too many.

My discus eggs were never viable. But their fry should eat the slime coat off the parents initially.

Yes, sorry. BBS have a very short window for being nutricious. Basically, you want to feed them as soon as possible after they hatch.
