It is very likely that the parents will eat the fry. I have a pair that spawn about 30 times. Only once were they able to raise a batch. And that was at the begining (their 5th batch). Everything else was meal: from eggs to 10 day free swimming. Everything is gone in few days.
I hear that even 2 week old free swimmer is not safe as long as it fits in his/her mouth. In my case, it is the male eating them as I witnessed several times.
