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.:)

hi
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.
