Yeah, cross your fingers. (lol, just kidding) There isn't really anything you can do right now, it's up to mom. If she holds them until day 3 or so I think they should be fertilized and you should get some fry. jmo

Most people wait until day 5 as that's when the eggs hatch. But most of my females won't hold until day 5 though so I usually strip on day 3 or 4 with "ok" results. Also, most people wait to feed for 5 days as well.
You could also let her hold and see if she can make it full term which makes it easy since you don't need to mess around with the tumbler.

Sorry, I should have just said I get "ok" spawns. I get good numbers of eggs sometimes, and bad numbers other times. I don't know if anything would change if they all held to at least day 5 or if I strip them on day 3.
