Help! New cichlid babies!

Sooo my peacock just had babies (I have them in a breeder net right now because I don't have another tank, and I don't want them to be eaten. I have about 20 of them and I want to know what to feed them, how often to clean the breeder net, how to clean the breeder net, how long will it take for them to grow. The female is some kind of black peacock and the male is an OB. I'll post pics of the babies and the male but I don't have any pics of the female. Click image for larger version

You could feed them newly hatched brine shrimp along with anything with algae on it. (my fry menu) I clean breeding boxes/nets just with some airline tubing. Put one end of the airline into the breeder box and breathe in deeply in the other end that with creat a siphon and you can use the airline tubing as a cleaner siphon!

Hope this Helps!
