Exclamation Blue Colbat Discus spawned

:D So I woke up today to see my blue cobalts have finally spawned ! I been watching them nip at the pot for a week an today they have laid 100's of eggs! I went to check on my other eggs from my red virgin and my pb but they were gone :( how do I prevent them from eating the eggs? I'm leaving the lights on 24/7 for 2 weeks I want to successfully breed the blues since they are my absolutely fav fish ever!

please tips, pointers, any an all advice to keep them from eating the fry

my blues are 5-6inches an very healthy the female went blind in one eye I got her from a man that didnt care for his fish an there water was so cloudy with ammonia you couldn't see the fish but I brought her back to health an now shes spawning :) very proud of myself.

heres a video below showing them an the eggs enjoy :)
