THey have also moved all of my plants to form like a little cove and protect the area visciously..

That depends if you want to keep them or not? Are they the only fish in the tank? Do you have another tank?

You can simply leave them alone and the parents won't bother them unless they feel the fry are in danger. Then they'll eat them. You can also feed them to other fish once they get a little larger. Don't worry, the convicts will provide you with more fry in no time at all.

I'd move them. But when you do you;ll need some foods for them. walter wroms,live brine shrimp. If there large enough you can smash some flake food up to almost nothing and add it to the fry tank.
