          Thanks.

          My friend said That I should take out the parents, or move the babies, I was kinda hoping to just leave them until the parents spawn again or until they were a bit older. What do you think?

            Depends on how many fry you want to save. If you are looking to save as many as possible, I'd pull them and start feeding BBS and Repashy.

                If I pull them, Would I want to pull the male too I have heard of them getting super aggressive towards the female after you pull them, I have fed them First bites, they went for it, Repashy they went crazy for, And I have super finely crushed bulk food that I have but haven't tryed yet, I haven't found any bbs around here looks like ill have to order some, What if I mix some frozen brine shrimp with some tank water and mash it up really good until its all really fine and mixed up well? on top of me feeding them the mommy has been taking her food and spitting at them and they go for that also.

                  Newely hatched brine shrimp are far more nutritiousthan frozen. BBS is loaded with good stuff for baby fish. It will increase survival and growth rates way beyond flake food. They also have more opprotunity to eat the BBS. The BBS will swim around for something like 12 hours before dying in fresh water. So it gives everybody a better chance to eat.

                    So the other day after I got home I noticed daddy con grabbing a baby in his mouth and spitting him out and he wouldn't stop he was doing it to the same one over and over so the next day I moved some fish around put a sponge over the intake on my 20Gtall and moved them over, so far they are all doing well and eating well there is probably about 75 left,

                        Try to give them away,Maybe have a RAOK, Feed them to bigger fish?, and possibly sell them to LFS the new owners are learning their stuff very fast and they have the store super clean, they have upgraded a lot of their stuff they have tons of new stuff for sale, and are gonna stock alot more stuff, They seem to be doing a veryyy good job I was impressed last time I went to check them out.
