If you had smaller ones when you started, they may have recently become sexually mature which explains the change now vs before.
The eggs would only be on the female(s) and she would be the larger fish in the group. I watched my Sterbai cories franticly " surf" the glass for close to 10-15 minutes straight looking for a place to deposit her eggs then when she finally put them somewhere, the males came behind her and ate the eggs.
I even watched a male push the female and eat the eggs she was holding in here fins.
So they are going to do what they are going to do when they want to do it.
