Well, the parents did great! I think it was the other fish in the community tank that ate the babies over the night. This morning as I watched the babies feeding off of the slime coat I realize they don't actually "stick" to the mom or dad like glue. They will feed a little, swim away a little, them swim back. It's when they swim away that they are vulnerable. If there had been no other fish in the tank I'm convinced these parents wouldn't have lost any fry.
I'm looking on craigslist right now for a good used tank. I hope when I move the parents I don't lose the "magic".
