She ended up swallowing them while I had to do several water changes and had too take something out of the tank due to an ammonia spike

Oh darn. I had a similar experience once with a young Angelfish, eating newly swimming babies so fast before I could even scoop her out.

Now you can prepare for the next time.

Sorry to hear the tank isn't optimal right now. Keeping tanks is lots of learning.

From others experiences and the school of hard knocks.

It sucks :\ but we have the ammonia dealt with now and its back to normal, but the males are already trying to breed her again hopefully she don't yet because she needs to eat a little while longer. I am starting to prepare tho just in case
