This is actually not true. Breeders usually think that if an egg falls out of the nest and doesn't hatch, It is because it fell out of the nest, but in reality, that egg never would have hatched anyway. As long as an egg is fertilized and wasn't damaged in any way after it fell to the bottom, That egg will almost ALWAYS hatch.
(Alot of the stuff you find on the internet isnt true at all, I know this information due to the fact that my aunt had been a Betta breeder for almost 25 years.)
