question about convict cichlid breeding

Hi all,
This is my first attempt at breeding these fish, so from what I heard, Convicts are about the easiest to breed. Anyway, I think my fish spawned today. They laid the eggs behind some rocks, totally out of view. I think they spawned because I havent seen the female except for a very short time while feeding.

My question is, if they bred out of sight, when it comes time to feed the fry, will she move then so they will have access to the food, or will they come out to eat. Silly question, but I'm not certain what I should expect.

Mike

Feed them when they are free swimming only. This shouldn't be a trouble though. Once free swimming, you can rear the fry by yourself and the parents will breed again. Convicts are so easy to breed that you just need to add water in the tank and poof, there they are breeding already.

I have a 29 gallon that I think I am going to put some convicts into. Is that a large enough space for one pair. (They will be totally alone.)
