If you go online you can order cultures...
microworms and banana worms are good easy cultures...

I plan on switching to them when I run out of BBS.

Yes,, microworms and other meaty foods can be offered but do not forget that livebearer's need substantial algae ,and or spirulina flake for they are largely herbivores in the wild and feed on algae,plant matter,and the tiny infusoria that are found there.
I used to throw a hunk of java moss in with the fry and also fed crushed formula II by Ocean Nutrition as staple part of their diets and the tiny fry did well.
Dried marine algae hung in the tank with veggie clip ,will quickly dissappear in a tank full of livebearer's.
I offered freezedried blood worms and spirulina brine shrimp as treats perhaps twice a week for adult livebearer's.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
