With this said...I was wondering if shining in a flashlight for a second would stress her out enough to eat the eggs

Well it might freak her out lol. I would just stay away from any possible way of bothering her.

I also got to quick of a glance to see how many eggs there were in the brood, but it is probably 1.5-2 times more than their first spawn a week and a half ago

One more question...both times my babies have mated all the other fish start hanging out on the same side of the tank as the nest, but not as much when there are no eggs...is that coincidence?

Well, I shined a flash light in...as you can see her pot is buried probably about half or three quarters in to the gravel...the reason I first suspected was because I couldn't see her in the tank...then I checked inside her pot and I could see movement (her) when she goes in and stays in there with out even poking her head out for a period of time that was my indication! I checked with light to make certain...does that make sense? And if it does...does it help?

That's probably why they were eaten in the first place. The female must have gotten really nervous with them all so close. I would remove the other fish if you want a successful spawn.
