Metriaclima estherae.

The females normally hold for roughly 21-28 days on average.

Ok what should i do to save the most babies? Do i just let nature take its course and see how many make it? Should i move them? Will they be able to protect them?

I'm the wrong person to ask that question, I hate hybrids of any sort so personally so I'd say let her spit into the tank and let nature take its course. If your set on keeping some then remove the female let her spit into a QT tank then place her back into the main tank at night. She will not protect the fry for more than a few hours on average, unlike the new world cichlids who defend their fry to the death.
