Gbr fry for the millionth time!

Hey guys so as the title says I once more have gbr fry and was wondering if anyone has any tips, so far the longest time ive had them going is 5 days im keeping them in a community tank with theyre parent(I understand thats not a good survival rate) the parents do an awesome job keep the neons and cories away ive yet to see any get eaten by the above mentioned fish and I feed them often but it seems like the parents lose interest in them after a while I saw the parents abandon theyre fry on the fifth day on a prior spawn is that just bad parenting famouse in these fish? Also sorry for the long post =)

I have read that is hard to feed them. The fry eat vinegar eels and micro worms that you have to culture.

If it were me I would keep the parents and babies in the existing tank and remove everything else. they would have a better chance at survival.
