Eggs in a tumbler

Good day everyone! I have some eggs from a dragon blood peacock that are in a tumbler. Saturday it will be a week. They are changing in appearance, they look like half of the egg is solid and half of our is clear liquid. This is the first time i have tried this and not sure if it is normal. Any comment our advice is well appreciated! Thanks!

Usually by a week the tail and head will have formed. Do you see two little black spots that look like eyes?

Mine usually have the head and tail starting to grow by day 4 or 5. These are Mbuna cichlid though, so it may be a little different. Have you noticed any fungus or the eggs turning white?

Dragon blood peacocks are not mbuna.

I meant my cichlids are Mbuna so it may be different from peacocks.

I doubt it's very different, I looked at them earlier after work. The eggs don't look they are good. Looks like some of them have leaked a little bit, there is stuff coming out of some them that doesn't look like eyes or tails. But it is not mild or fungus looking at all

Are the eggs yellow? If they are a different color than yellow they are no good.

I also forgot to add that when I stripped her I didn't get all the eggs from her. It looks like she still has a good mouth full. Her buccal cavity isn't extended anymore but she def still has a good mouth full. So not all is lost anymore

Yes this is the fourth time. First time she ate the eggs after a week. Second time I stripped her as soon as I noticed it. I have been experimenting on stripping time 3-4 times

If you're going to strip, I would do it after 3to 4 days. The female will know what eggs are unfertilized and will spit them out by then. Let me know how it goes. Good luck!
