Before the last batch of babies hatched I had pulled Papa and put him in a separate tank. About a week after the babies hatched, I pulled Mama and put her into a third tank...I have plenty of babies just now...don't need any more for a few months at least! (Such a dilemma, eh?)  I'd also wanted to give her a break to eat and regain her strength/weight.

So, last night, while watching SNF, we noticed that Mama Blue has a mouthful of unfertile eggs! Assuming she'll go another 2 weeks without eating, should I net her and cause her to spill her eggs, or leave her be? Will she realize they are not fertile and 'dispense' with them, or what?
