blood parrots spawning. need advice.

i have two blood parrots that have laid eggs. does anyone have experience with these fish ?. i know they are a hybrid fish and it is hard for them to breed but it seems they have laid eggs and fertilized them. both of them are on heavy guard duty. thing is , i moved them from my 55 gallon because of bullying from my flowerhorn and put them in my 29 gallon. they are in there with 10 lemons and a silver dollar. what should i do if or should i do anything at all.?

The eggs are white. Any where from 50+ eggs that i can see. Might be more inside the cave.

Your male is sterile, those are underutilized eggs then

Female ate the eggs. They were not fertilized. The male went ballistic and wont stop trying to attack the female. Had to separate them.
