Fish that don't eat their young?

Aside from cichlids and white cloud mountain minnows are there any other fish that actually take care of their young rather than making them lunch?

Whiptail catfish don't. The mother might try to but the dad will chase her off & take care of the eggs. I think he still guards them when they hatch but mine have never bred, all I know is from research. Good luck
