hmm yeah I'd wait and see. You def. don't want to get a female that's bigger than your male. Usually that's how males get killed/ hurt badly.

i tried my red male which is abit smaller then the female n so the female tore his whole tail and ate it
so i quickly removed him n the females tummy was like so big
n now my red male is still recovering he's in a really bad shape he could still swim perfectly though

nd for my male how do i stop him from eating eggs during the next spawn

Well it doesn't really matter. If he ate all he eggs, just leave him be, but if he didn't eat all of them he might be taking care of the ones in there now. Is he mouthing the nest or is he completely ignoring it?

Also, have you done your research before attempting breeding? So many things can go wrong, even for experienced breeders.

Yeah just take your time on learning before you breed again. Make sure you have fry food ready and make sure that your spawning pair have been conditioned correctly.
