Breeding gbr

So I got a couple German blue rams about a month back and all has been well. I was fortunate enough to get a male and female and they have paired up. In the last couple weeks they have both colored up very nicely and they are still barely over an inch long, male is about 1 1/2". I have experience with breeding African cichlids. Just in the last day or two I've noticed the male gbr doing the "dance" that I often saw in africans immediately before a spawn. He swims up to the female and turns broadside, colors up very brightly, then kinda does a shimmy shake. I assume this is his courtship dance so with luck I will have a first spawn here shortly. Anyone have any tips or info to share in regards to breeding gbr? Other than the common info of eating thier eggs/fry. I'm hoping this isn't the case here, if so that they only do it the first couple spawns.
