Your first step would be to try and move the fry as it's a large possibility they will be consumed by the larger cichlids in the tank.

If you do not have an extra tank then go buy a breeder net and hope for the best, it's not uncommon for larger cichlids to eat the young fry through the net.

Baby brine shrimp is an excellent choice but you can still feed them crushed up fish flakes but they would absolutely love the baby brine.

Congrats ! If you have places for him/her to hide I would just let things be. I just discovered a new baby today. Having been down the guppy and platy route,( 5 tanks later) I am fine with letting the strong survive.Good luck !
