Brood care in filamentosus

I currently have a tank with four females guarding eggs/young. The oldest
group of fry are now about 2 weeks old. Something I haven't seen before
happened yesterday. I came down to find that the female was only leading
about half of the fry I left her with the other night. I thought perhaps
some had been eaten during the night by other fish, or maybe her. On closer
observation, I found the male on the opposite end of the tank with more than
half of the fry. He's now been leading them around the tank for the better
part of two days. I wasn't under the impression that male fils participated
in brood care. Anyone seen this before?
