I usually remove cory eggs and hatch them in a 2 or 3 liter bowl with an air stone and a drop of Acriflavine or Methelyne Blue. I then start changing water with water from the parents tank as soon as they hatch. When the yolk sacs are gone usually after three days I then feed Micro worms for a few days then live newly hatched baby brine shrimp. With most cories this works but some are more finicity than others. Had such a case a short time ago and a cory specialist made a suggestion of which I had heard years ago but never had the need to try. He told me that soon after the eggs hatch he squeezes the sludge from a sponge filter into the bowl . I have since tried it and can say this works on fry that I have had problems with. Does anyone heard of or uses this method?

No, but kind of made sense because of the micro organism in the sponge.

So do you do this sludge feeding daily? and still do daily water changes?

I just add the sludge once and then feed sparingly with micro worms.A bit of water should be changed from the parents tank every couple of days. The fry will hide in the sludge.

Charlie Grimes calls this " Sponge Grunge ". Have also tied this before with great success .
