pajama cardinal holding eggs

My male pajama cardinal has a mouthfull (literally) of eggs. I noticed when he would try to eat he could not because so many eggs where in his mouth. I wondered if I should move him to a smaller tank in hopes of saving and raising the fry or is there a chance they can make it on thier own. I know these guys are called the "marine guppies."

Want a great read check out my debut novel Neptune's Garden: www.neptunesgardenbook.com

i just had a mishap tonight with my bangaii cardinals and his batch, this is his 3rd batch he has held onto for the full term the first batch i cought 3 and found 3 in my sump dead 2 of wich are doing well and about 5 monthes old, the second batch he held richt untill the end i could see the babys in his mouth then poof all gone with no trace, i believe all got eaten by either the fire shrimp or some mystery fish i have,both of with seem to hang around towards the end,well this time i made the choice to catch him and move him to a 20g that i put a divider in where the othe 2 babys live i had do dig out about 40 pounds of rock and corals to catch him and had a hard time he has had the eggs for 1 month tommorow when i got him in the net he spit out about 15 not fully hatched babys wich i quickly moved him and them to the 20g and about half seem to have at least a chance the others i dont think were close enough but im hopein,
im shure there will be a next time and ill have to catch and move him sooner to try and avoid this,but i still think i made the right choice rather than give a meal to the tankmates
