Farlowella help

Does anyone know much about breeding farlowella? I have a big male and I think two females and they have been spawning every couple if weeks. The eggs don't last long past being laid in my tank with discus, cherry barbs and some other species. So today I removed the only two remaining healthy looking eggs. Is this container enough?

I am wondering if 67 degrees in my house will be too cold or should I put the container back in the tank somehow?

So I found a way to keep them in the tank isolated. And I bumped the temp up. Logic tells me they would like warmer water

So I moved my tank a month ago and the conditions are ideal now for my farlowella. They layed eggs behind the temperature strip which helped hide them and I finally have live farlowella babies.
