Video of a female CT trying to keep her own eggs in her own little bubblenest

I gave my co-worker a female crowntail a while back and yesterday he noticed some crazy behavior! She was trying so hard to keep her eggs from falling out of the little pathetic bubblenest she made. When we came in today it looks like they were al gone and she was fat as it gets. Should we be worried about her?
Here is the video-

It's not uncommon for females to eat their eggs. Just fast her a day or two cause her belly is full-up now. But yeah, there's been odd cases here before where a female would blow a pathetic little nest, release eggs, and try to tend to it with no avail. >.>

Weird. I've seen one of my girls blow a nest, but I've never seen them false lay, or "tend" to their eggs! Interesting.

LOL It's not for everyone.

It looked to me like she was eating them. Isn't the male supposed to tend to them instead for that reason?

It won't hurt her if she eats them.

But it will make her an egg eater and unsuitable for breeding.
