From what i hear the babies are ok because they eat of the parents. I've seen pics where the parents are pink cause all the babies are eating of one parent.

How many spawns have they had? And I would divide the tank so that the parents don't have to worry about something eating the babies at night.

The parents can be eating them because there not protected. The babies hang around the parents for 90days or something like that i forget. But separate the pair so there alone.

once there larva or wigglers are gone it takes about 5 to 7 days for them to lay eggs again. i really dont care about raising discus i was just wondering if 1 or 2 may survive as they become better parents

no they wont. they wont grow to a size where they can feed on normal food off the parents.
