Default my convicts just had babies!!

wow! i just came home from work and noticed that two of my convict chiclids have a bunch of babies that they are guarding in a cave in the back corner of my 55 gallon.

what do i need to do??? the convict pair share the tank with 1 other convict, 2 green sevrums, 2 jack dempseys, and 3 african butter catfish. all of the above mentioned fish are one inch or smaller in size.

the pair are strongly guarding the new batch of fish...

what do the newly born fish eat or require??

55 gal- 3 african butter catfish, 2 blood parrot cichlids, 1 common pleco
10 gal- 2 tiger barbs, 2 red phantom tetras, 2 (very young) raphael catfish
