Eggs sunk will they hatch?

I have betta eggs on the Bottom of tank and I have taken out the father becos he ate the eggs/frys..

Will the frys be okay until they learn to free swim?

Are they going to survive?... :(..

If the eggs have sunk and they aren't being put back in the nest... then they are gonners :( But as long as hatched fry don't sink they should be fine... the males job it pretty much to eat un-fertilised eggs, clean the eggs and pick them up off the floor!
(Just watch out for velvet disease)

If eggs were fertilized, it's a race against mold. But some should hatch.

It's already been over 1 day. And only 2 hatched. And 3 that are slowly hatching. There are lots nd lots of eggs lying on the floor...what now?...they aren't showing any signs of hatching.

Temp is around 80-81

Also I covered the tank for humidity.

Idk what else to do?...

If they haven't hatched when they should, they probably wont. Give them another day then siphon them out before mold can do damage to the surviving fry - fry can get stuck in the mold and die.
