Cichlids, depending upon species, often have one parent that guards the eggs/fry and the second defends the general territory. Each fish can be somewhat different, and sometimes the parent guarding the eggs decides that the other should be driven from the area. I went through this with the Bolivian Ram, first spawning the female guarded the eggs and tore into the male like you wouldn't imagine; second spawning, it was different. Angelfish are notorious for not being successful for the first spawnings of a young pair, often eating the eggs/fry themselves, point here is that it may take them a few trys to get it all down correct. All this is natural behaviour. With sufficient space for the male (in this case) to "disappear" it should be OK.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
