Congrats! Those juvies look very healthy.

How big were your breeding adults?

Very nice! I kept a group of 8 juveniles which I got from a local breeder a few years ago.

Unfortunately I'm now left with 1, I have a feeling that once they get a little larger than the ones in your video, they can become very aggressive/territorial with each other, I'd find a dead one once a week or so until I was down to a single fish left, which is still doing fine.

If you have the space I'd recommend keeping one per tank, or if not, plenty of cover in the largest tank you are able to provide.

Good luck with them.
