I would only add to what Byron has stated that if the mated pair are successful with spawning, and fry appear, then when fry become free swimming the parent's will become more agressive while sheperding the fry around the tank and any other fishes that happen to be near the free swimming fry will be at risk.
Normally, IME the fry stay close to the parnet's near the nesting site for the first couple weeks, but after that, the parnet's begin venturing away more often and some of the fry will follow. This is in my expierience when other fishes that were smart enough to stay away from the nesting site are more at risk .

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
