They will frequently eat the  eggs the first couple of times as they are just learning to be parents. Also being with other fish will sometimes make them nervous and they will eat them.
if you want them to breed successfully you really need to have them in a seperate tank, preferably at least a 20 G. I leave mine about 3 or 4 days free swimming and then remove the parents.
