Are you using a half cup for your male to nest in? If so check there. I had the same thing happen only he would collect a bunch of eggs and make one bubble to hold them. Never did have a nest just the eggs floating around. Seamed to be more work for him,but I figured that was his choice.

sometimes the male will hold eggs in his mouth for extended periods of time and even appear to be chewing on it before returning it to the nest. I just saw my male pick an egg up, and then spend around 5 min foraging (even eating stuff) off of the bottom before returning the egg to the nest.

I have read elsewhere of some people transferring the eggs to a small bowl and allowing them to hatch on their own.
