Convicts fighting

I have what I think is 2 pairs of convicts in a 30 gallon tank,I've had them since they were baby's
One of the females went red and started to protect a Pleco cave I had in there,and I saw eggs in the cave a week later.
Any way the eggs were there for about 3 days then disappeared,now she is getting quite aggressive to her mate,and keeps chasing him they have lip locked a few times now and she's still protecting the cave,has anybody got any ideas why she's started acting aggressively to the male?

most likely there are wigglers in the cave. Male probably seen as a threat. I just went through this with my cons. The male eventually killed the female and ate the fry. 2 pairs in a 30 is a little tight.
