The eggs were a dark yellow and a few hours later turned white. Could the eggs be covered in fungus? They seem to be one white lump now. The dad is still fanning them so it hard to see the eggs clearly. Any suggestions?

I guess mate the eggs have not been fertilised.
Can you be more specific as to the BN you are refering too, and its age.
More importantly can you supply photos.

It's more than likely the eggs have not been fertilised. It could be the inexperience of the male or possibly the design of the cave.
You could remove the cave and eggs to see if any are fertile and remove all the infertile ones, then try hatching them in a fry saver, the infertile eggs will probably fungus and this will spread to any healthy eggs.
