Yes they will. The parents might also. I would try and save as many as you can and place them in a breeding net or a separate tank. Do you have food ready for them?

You can expect any fish in the tank with the fry to eat anything that fits into their mouths, so yes.

I've never done it myself so no hands on experience but this is what I've heard/read.
They need microscopic food/infusia (sp??) or commercial fry food for the first week until they are big enough to eat newly hatched brine shrimp.
You might want to google what to feed and look after them
