REMOVE THE OTHER FISH immediately. They are highly protective of their eggs and will literally kill anything which comes near them, if they feel threatened.
The tank size is about the limit for keeping a single fish and a pair should be housed in a 75g tank or bigger. If this is their batch of eggs then DO NOT be disheartened that NONE survive. It can take a few attempts to get it right.
They are in a breeder tank for now....ALONE....it was temp until I rehomed them to the larger tank! I will be upgrading soon!! Thanks for the advice!
