I would just wait and see what happens...

if they abandon the nest, then you could try a W/C

I'd siphon where he's circling/fanning. They might of got covered or depending on gravel color they can be almost impossible to see. When they hatch they wiggle into gravel so they might already have hatched. Worth a check.

Great job. Can I ask a few questions, I'm planning to breed mine. How did you siphon them? And how long did you wait before siphoning? And also how did you get rid of the fungus

What I mean by siphoning is, did you directly siphon from the parents tank to the fry tank or did you use another container. In my case I cant siphon it directly because thetanks are far apart. AnD its heavy. I suppose I need to buy another 10gal?
