alternative to baby brine?

I have some angelfish and would ove to breed them. All I keep seeing is that you must feed the fry freshly hatched brine shrimp the first week or so. Is there an alternative to this?

I use first bites, idk if it's the best (i think it's basically crushed flakes but theyre REALLY tiny). It's made for newborn fish, I'm sure people recommend a lot of different stuff but I've had luck with this stuff, although I am more experienced with livebearers than egg layers.

what kinds of frozen foods do you use? I only have brine shrimp (I think it's all the lfs has), I can only get most stuff freeze dried. If I added a couple drops of water water to my freeze dried food could I use it the same way?
