Are they just with the parents or in a community tank?

They will be quite safe if there are only BN's in the tank, if there are other fish in the tank it will depend on what they are.

The mollies are possibly the only fish that may make a meal of young BN's, saying that there are some forum members that have said they don't.

Only try moving the fry if any of the other tankmates show signs that they may harm the fry, you could try putting them in an old ice cream tub or similar food safe container, but you really need to add some kind of aeration, like an airstone, if possible. If you can not add aeration then regular small water changes will help keep oxygen levels high untill you can get a fry saver.

Sorry my mistake Embarassed

You could try putting the eggs in a container, like I suggested, with the extra aeration of the air stone, but I doubt it will work without a proper fry saver/egg tumbler. Even with fry savers/egg tumblers they don't always hatch.

There is a DIY egg tumbler idea HERE but I would be surprised if you have all the parts to hand.

Something has probably disturbed the male causing him to boot the eggs, possibly so busy trying to keep tank mates out that it distracted him from fanning the eggs.

the loaches that are going into the cave are going in there to feed on the eggs, of that im sure. lucky they are only small and only would eat one or two. A quick solution to save the eggs is a seive that has the eggs inside. the put an airstone under the sive so there is a nice flow of water through the sieve. Works well, i have hatched a few spawns like this.
