    You should let daddy take care of them. He knows what he is doing. Best to remove them into their own tank (daddy with cave and eggs/fry). Don't feed them until their sack is gone. I think the eggs also need current which helps the eggs from fungus. Put in a filter, facing into the cave.

    should be fine, just make sure there isnt too much direct light and the current isnt too strong but other than that should be fine for the time being :)

    I'm not sure since mine never kicked the eggs out. Usually if he kicked them out, he doesn't want them so I think it is best to raise them yourself. Have enough current, that won't push the eggs around, so that it mimics the dad, fanning them in the cave.
