Panduro kept 2 spawns together

So my panduro spawned 3 weeks ago and she still ahs about 4 somewhat decent sized fry left. I checked on them a couple days ago and and I saw that she had eggs and strangely enough, the 4 leftover fry in the pvc tube with the eggs. I checked up in them today and I can see that they’re free swimming but I can only see 2 left, and all of them have suspiciously pink bellies. What should I do? Since there’s basically no fry left from this spawn and 4-5 fry left from the previous spawn, should I just leave them and hope that the female can raise them up?

Since she wants to spawn again I would remove the remaining fry to a separate grow-out tank.
