Cherry Barb babies need help...!

This morning I woke up to Cherry Barb babies in my quarantine tank! I had moved my Cherries over there just because but I didn't really like that setup so I moved them back to the other tank, but they must have spawned during their stay!
The babies are so tiny and I'm wondering what I should feed them. Some of them appear to be free swimming already but there are also quite a few clinging to the tank walls. I had gotten Hikari First Bites for them this morning but the little pieces are the same size as the fry! I read on the internet to feed them hard boiled egg yolk squeezed through a cloth so I tried that and that appears small enough but I can't tell if they can eat it...
Help! I really want at least 4 or 5 to survive... =/

I don't have a sponge filter either...Is that really necessary or will daily water changes be ok until they're big enough for the normal filter?
