Did you provide them fine-leaved plants? Their way of spawning is by depositing the eggs among fine-leaved plants. Ambulias and cabombas prove to be quite useful.:)

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

perhaps this idea may be of some help
a fine mesh placed on top of leaves,
then when the eggs are layed they will stick to
the debris under the net,and the parents won't be
able to eat them.
and from what i can read on the net,
you can see them.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
