help with convicts

my convicts recently had babies (approx. 3 weeks ago). All of a sudden the male won't let the female near the babies. He chases her away. Is this normal? Her stripes are also barely visible is she stressed or is she going to spawn again already? Except for the 15 to 20 babies the parents are the only other fish in this tank of 30 gallons.

my convicts just had babies, when do I remove them from the parents or do I?
There not even swimming yet about the size of a grain of rice. I see aleast 30 so far.
Convicts are great parents and the only real reason to remove them would be if you wanted to raise them yourself. Just let them be and let mom and dad do their job.
