Not much to do until their yolks are fully absorbed. Then they will need to be fed. Anything that gets soft like a bit of algae wafer or veggie stick. I am a fan of Repashy foods and for bn the Soilent Green is good stuff

Do you have anti-fungus in the breeder box with the eggs, Methelene Blue or something else? Jungle fungus clear tabs work at 1/2 tab per gallon of water. If not, boost the air flow to keep a good circulation going. Just because the eggs got kicked out doesn't mean they are bad. I think sometimes the female accidentally pushes them out when she leaves.

You cannot limit an anti-fungal to the breeder box as it is floating inside the tank. if the eggs are viable you will see wiggler brake out of the shell and be attached to a "huge" yolk sac compared to their tiny size.

Those eggs look viable to me.

Depends on the type of breeder box. I have some that are solid and can hang inside or outside the tank. They have a removable tube to provide circulation when putside. When inside, an air line provides circulation. No mixing with the tank water unless you want.

I use the kind of traps that hang on the front of the tank and use an airpump circulate tank water through the trap and back into the tank. Water quality is where they were born, should likely grow and is a lot cleaner being filtered. I think I have 6 or 7 of them.

But do you think they will be dint in the breeding box it’s a box with holes in the bottom and a air stone and the eggs were only on the tanks ground for about 6 hours.

They look fine, but kicked them out? Where were they attached?
It’s his first time being a dad and the cave is on a slope so I think he accidentally kicked them out here’s a better photo

Put some drops of "Patience" on them and you'll know soon enough.

As said elsewhere often first spawnings are kicked out for some reason. Just like some cichlids often eat their fiirst batch of eggs.
