This might be completely random but I've been told by a couple people in my lfs to put broken up clay pots in a tank. IMO that is really just a place she will give birth but maybe you can look into it

I know of a CF breeder here in IL that uses terra cotta pots and tiles. He swears by them; great surfaces for the eggsI was told.

The clay pots are there so the whole clutch of eggs can be easily removed to the fry tank just before hatching,I do the same.Its easier than trying to syphon the eggs off LR in hard to get to places or trying to catch the fry after hatching.just make sure to use terracotta plant pots as some other pots or tiles may seep metals into your tank.
