You should be praising convicts to your friends so that when the fry are big enough you have people eager to take them. Other than that just leave the eggs, the parents will get a chance to practice raising them. Are there any other fish in the tank besides parents and eggs?

how long does it take to hatch???
3-4 days, then another 3-4 for wrigglers to become free swimming

That'll give the jewels and other cons a chance... the parents wouldn't have an issue defending the fry.
