Fish spawns while on vacation

The jewel cichlids that spawned in the 65g just before we left for vacation are now protecting about two dozen fry.  They seem to be doing a good job protecting them from all the other cichlids in the tank.

The Apistogramma agassizi female in the 90g is also protecting new fry.  They’re really tiny, so probably only a few days old.  I saw about 8 or so, but they’re so hard to see, and since they don’t move much, I suspect there are more than a dozen.
