I believe she is about an hour or so from Edmonton.

My male is frustrating me he is letting all the eggs fll to the bottom and is not picking them up what do I do? There is roughly a hundred eggs I think in total. About fifty on the bottom of the tank.

I think that is ok, I don't have experience with it but as long as your tank is clean there should no be to many problems.

Some males will not pick up all the eggs. Trust me... Ares woke up and so may of his eggs were on the bottom. He tried to pick them all up but some still stayed at the bottom and hatched just fine ;)

It is really up to you. If you see he ignores the nest entirely as well, or begins destroying it... Remove him. You can attempt to artificially hatch the eggs. Any bad eggs must be removed - not sure how to tell which are "bad".

Artificially hatch them? I thought if I tok out the male seeing as he doesn't even stay under the nest the eggs would hatch on there own? I will probably remove him tonight as he is bloated,

They will yes, just you will have to act "dad" at this point :) most good dads eat the bad eggs. Any eggs that do not hatch, you need to remove. Dead fry as well (which is common to have some dead fish so don't worry!) Ares would eat the weak fry and any bad eggs. So, in your case the quick removal of anything dead is top priority! :)
