Infusoria is easy to make, Neil. Why do you feel that you need paramecium in particular?

any infusoria you make, with banana peel, or spinach, left for some time in aquarium water put in a small jam bottle, can be used for fry with small mouths. after they grow larger, you can give them microworms if they are bottom-dwellers, and vineger eels, if the fry are surface-dwellers.

i know there some species of fish fry that are too big for infusoria and too small for microworms/vingar eels, but this is very rare indeed. To second Wojtek, what species of fish fry do you have that you need to feed?

infusoria> vinegar eels> microworms> grindals> white worms> the delhi tubifex species i found and distributed> meal worms> compostworms---this order, in increasing size from left to right, of live food, is enough for for 99% of popular fish species ;)

I have kept all 8 foods, and trust me, keeping so many simultaneously is a lot of effort, and is not even needed. i no longer bother. Adding paramecium, one more, would be taking it too far!
