When i kept africans and i had a holding female i would wait about 21 days and catch her out. I had a 10 gallon set up specifically for this. The female would spit the fry out within a couple days. Id leave her in with they fry for a few days to let her rest up and get some food. Then it was back to the main tank with her. Use a sponge filter for the fry tank, or else they make get sucked into a regular filter. I would feed the fry crushed up cichlid pellets or flakes. Good luck with your fry!
