We noticed she wasn't eating around 2nd of August. So once 3 - 4 weeks are up she should let them go. Which should be about know right.And will my other cichlids eat the babies?
I hope not.

Yes, I would say it could be any day now. Do you have a lot of plants in your tank? The fry would have a better chance if they have plants to hide in. The parents should protect the babies to a certain extent but I wouldn't expect 100% survival. I will leave it to more of an expert to give further advise.
