Get those egg crate to partition to prevent the hooks from stealing the eggs.

Congrats though.

I have a spare tank running awaiting my new project. It is up, running and ready, can i transfer the pair and the eggs over instead ? To partition the 3ft width can be quite troublesome

Could try ro leave to the parent to look after the eggs and guard against possible intruders. Leave the a light on at night will be a big help to the parents.

When leave them there,I am sure can hatch successfully
But the fries when starting to learn swimming,all will be eaten by tankmates,the parents don't think hv time to look after each and every fries

you can try to use hose to suck out the fries when hatch but before they start to learn seimming(wriggle stage)

but you hv to careful the angry parents,they will attack your hand & hose
