Mom not good enough

My A. cacatuoides "Orange Flash" pair spawned a little over a week ago. (Thanks again Tomoko!!!) The other day I was looking and was sad to see that mom only had about 6~8 fry left with her. I figured that either mom ate the rest or they had died. So I started to look around the tank to see if I saw any dead fry. Then in the back of the tank I noticed a cloud of fry around dad! I guess he decided that mom wasn't doing a good enough job and took most of the babies for himself! It is sort of funny, they have the tank divided about in half and won't the other adult on their side. Dad has the better half with a nice piece of driftwood the fry like to explore around...
