Provide cover / hiding places. The adults aren't smart enough not to eat the eggs / young fry.

Or remove either the adults or eggs to another tank.

You'll need a sponge filter or some type of cover over your filter intake so that the little ones don't get sucked up.

A sad update - the female died. I don't know what happened, she was breathing pretty quick, and then she was dead when I got home a little later. She was really full of eggs; maybe they were stuck or something. I'm so disappointed and sad.
