Usually once the pair starts a new spawn they will view the previous spawn as something to protect their new spawn from, instead of the fry that they were raising.
I agree with BarbH on when to remove the fry. I have some extensive experience with breeding convicts. First by choice but then I couldn't stop the action. I had 2 pairs. They only became aggresive when they were getting ready to spawn. It was at that point I would remove the fry to another tank.
