Fire mouth fry in a community tank?!

Hello everyone!!
I have never bred fire mouths in my life and after a long week the fry are free swimming haha. It's so exciting but I don't know what to do! I attempted to move the fry into a breeder box that I have but the parents won't let me :/ at this point I don't really know what to do because I am not sure how fire mouths behave. Will they eat the fry? Or will they continue to protect them. Oh and these fish are In a 75 gallon with a parrot a Severum another fire mouth a geo and a pleco. Thank you so much in advance. I'm freaking out!

I decided to move them into a breeder box but a lot of them seem like they are dying

I have never bred firemouths but leaving them with the parents is what I have heard is best.

Good luck
