You will probably have trouble getting rid of them unless someone is looking for feeders. If you remove the fry, the adults will spawn again.

Join a fish club. Don't have one in your area? Start one.

Congrats on the babies. You can leave them in as long as you like, though eventually the parents will spawn again and if the fry are still in there they will eat thier smaller siblings. I have a mated pair of convicts and I use the babies as feeders for my larger fish. Anyway, it is fun to watch them be parents.
