I know nothing of Cichlids but congratulations. You might want to try posting in the Cichlid section on the AC.

Welcome to the Fabulous AC and Happy New Year!:19: !:22:

From what I have read the male will eat them if given the chance.
I would remove tham soon.Have you another cycled tank?
Hopefully some other members will have some ideas for you.I have never kept them.
