Hello, i would say around 72 hours and the eggs will hatch. i really dont think the eggs will b fertilized at all since she already laid them and he was not sperming on them.. lift the divider after the eggs r gone. see if they pair up. if they do around 11 day or so she will lay eggs again. leave them in there even after the eggs hatch. i have fry in with the parents until the fry reach about 3/4 inch then i move the parents.. i do that so i dont make the female lay too many clutches of eggs too fast and that way the parents r used to having babies around and will not kill them or eat the eggs. also i have found that when i leave the fry with the parents more of the fry survive for some reason..??.. i personally think the fry eat the waste or "crap" that the parents produce. water changes are a must when your fry are growing. try not to clean the bottom of the tank for about 35-45 days. when doing water changes just siphon the water, try and keep it off the bottom and dont suck up any fry. what size tank do u have them in? and that is a very nice female... any pics of other fish?
i hope this was some help for you
thx for the input adam, I lift the divider last night, and they been together since, the male seem going over the egg for coupe second and leave. today I look at the egg there a few white egg so I guess the egg haven't been fertilizer. they both in 75g
