Convict eggs fell

When my convict laid eggs in one of the pots in my tank and the male fertilized them, the eggs were on the ceiling of the pot and now most of them are on the bottom of the pot, as if they fell... Is that normal? It has been 3 days since they were laid and fertilized... I also have some pics...

That's normal, they hatched into wigglers. If you look closely they should be vibrating. The parents should keep them bunched together and in a few days they'll be free swimming. At that point they will need to be fed regularly.
