    The texas will eat them, if given the chance, I would remove it or the fry, which ever is easier.

    I agree. The Texas will most likely try to eat the fry unless it is a parent.

    A Texas is usually the most aggressive fish in the tank. If your Texas sets his/her mind to it you can guarantee the it will get the fry eventually. But I'd try to leave the fry with the parents for now and see what happens. Convicts spawn constantly so you wouldn't have to worry about not getting more babies if the current ones are eaten.
