 Did  you  leave  the  babies  with  their  parents  before  going?  The  parents  might  have  eaten  them.  It  is  generally  adivsed  to  remove  the  parents  once  the  fry  are  free  swimming.

 Hi  Abhi!  Sorry  about  your  convict  babies  lost.Were  the  babies  with  their  parents?
 
 Last  month  I  have  also  lost  my  jewel  chichlid  babies.  But  10  babies  are  left  in  their  first  breed.  I  think  it  is  big  challenge  to  grown  the  babies.

 I  guess  the  exact  reason  is  unknown.I  have  come  up  with  the  following  possibilities  -
 
 1.The  parents  might  have  that  fear  that  others  may  eat  their  fries.So  in  this  fear  i  guess  they  end  up  eating  their  own  ones.I  dont  see  this  happening  in  your  case  since  you  have  no  other  tank  mates  with  whom  the  convicts  are  sharing  their  tank,  unless  of  course  their  is  too  much  of  disturbance  near  the  tank.
 
 2.You  said  that  you  were  not  there  for  a  few  days.The  fries  might  not  have  had  adequate  food  during  that  period  of  time  and  hence  they  died.
 
 3.They  are  no  doubt  caring  parents  but  only  uptil  a  certain  period  of  time.Once  the  fries  are  free  swimming,  they  let  them  fend  for  themselves.
 
 4.Many  say  either  one  of  the  parents  have  to  be  removed.I  dont  exactly  understand  the  meaning  of  it.If  the  male  can  eat  the  fries,  so  can  the  female  right?
 
 5.The  male  being  the  aggresive  of  the  two  most  probably  wanted  to  breed  again.The  female  resisted  and  hence  he  ate  the  fries  instead   Chuckle  
 
 I  hope  i  have  given  a  lot  of  reasons  for  you  to  choose  from  Abhis  Da.
 Btw,  sorry  for  your  loss.But  dont  worry,  they  do  indeed  breed  like  pigs  and  you  'll  soon  have  a  batch  of  fries  again   Smile  
 Best  of  luck.

 Thanks  Hrishi.....
 
 Here  is  my  obsevation...
 
 1>  No......no  other  fish  in  tank
 
 2>  No......someone  feed  them  once  a  day
 
 3>  No......The  day  I  left  home  they  are  only  2  days  old...so  no  question  of   free  swimming
 
 4>  No......This  was  their  2nd  time  breed  in  same  place...1st  time  also  they  did  the  same  but  no  prob...
 
 5>  No  idea....

 I  am  really  became  surprised  about  their  behaviour  ...........
 
 Lastly  I  have  arround  15  babies  of  1st  lot  left  and  they  are  about  1.5"....now  I  observed  that  everyday  one  of  them  is  dying....I  cheked  the  dead  fish.....eye  are  no  more.  more  or  less  whole  tale  is  lost,  lowerside  of  the  body  looks  like  half  eaten....Now  only  2  of  them  are  left..........

 Hi  Abhi!  I  have  also  some  jewel  cichlid  fries.  Some  are  growing  very  fast  and  some  are  very  small.  I  think  big  fries  eat  small.

 *My  own  Theory*
 
 I  think  cichlids  may  eat  their  young  because  they  dont  have  a  very  develped  brain(yet)  and  they  rely  on  thier  genes  heavily  for  lots  of  things.And  their  genes  may  only  have  the  information  to  protect  only  the  very  small  fry.This  makes  them  excelent  parents,but  the  Instructions  on  the  genes  end  here.After  the  fry  grow  up  into  Fish  like  creatures,  The  parents  dont  understand  if  its  a  fry  or  just  another  small  fish(a.k.a  food).Hence  they  let  their  stomachs  decide,and  eat  the  fry.If  they  had  a  developed  brain,they  would  realize  that  their  fry  have  grown  into  fish  and  they  would  protect  them  too.

 One  thing  I  forgot  to  metion  that  they  already  separate  from  their  parents  long  time  back  ....when  they  start  feeding  their  own.....I  kept  them  in  a  separate  tank..........
 
 THAT'S  WHY  I  AM  VERY  SURPRISE............
