Just keep and eye to see if the eggs hatch. If the eggs are white, they are no good. If they are cream to brown colored, they are fertilized. I pulled my fry out at about 2 weeks and it was too soon I think. I'm going to wait until about 4 to 5 weeks this time and let them learn some parenting skills.

Don't get too stress and try to enjoy it. I know its hard but after the first batch you will enjoy it much more the next.

Can you post some pictures? Keep us updated if you can.
