Yeah, if they're on something removable, get the eggs out! Do you have a separate tank for either the parents or the eggs?

Yes I could move the parents if needed to my 55 but I think I will wait to see them eating the eggs or fry

Its pretty much guaranteed they'll eat the eggs or wigglers, they're horrendous parents.

By the time you catch them eating the eggs or fry it may be too late. I would commit to one method or the other.

Sounds fertilized to me, but it could take more time to find out. That's what mine looked like for my most recent spawn (which is currently about to become free-swimming)
