    You are not doing anything wrong. The pair are immature parents and not sure what to do. Covering the eggs is a good idea, but make sure the parents can still fan them and care for them. Once the wrigglers become free swimming and feeding off the parents then you should be ok. Good luck
    Why me ?

    To the parents?
    Does that mean I should worry about them eating their next batch as well?

    Yes the parents. Are they in a tank on their own? or still in a community tank with other fish?

    When the parents get scared by other fish then they would sooner eat the fry than let the other fish steal them. Best to set up a breeding tank and eliminate this behavior. It does happen even with older established pairs too but try to keep them happy, good water and food, and they should do it right.
    Why me ?
