Don't worry. I accidentally took out the whole nest of one of my male's recently and had eggs and nest stuck to my fingers. The eggs went everywhere and I thought he would abandon them.

However, he went around and picked up everyone of those eggs and they hatched a couple of days later.

So don't worry. He may not eat them just because you disturbed the nest. Some dads are pretty good.

A good daddy will care for the nest/eggs/fry regardless of "accidents". As long as they aren't constantly disturbed.

Why I prefer tanks, so I can see what is going on and look at the nest in hopes for eggs without disturbing anyone.. also clear plastic bins aren't bad either.

Hope he goes back to taking care of them. Being removed from the tank I am unsure of personally.. I can see them going back after a nest was disturbed because that can happen naturally (rain, etc), but unsure what goes through their mind when they are removed from the spawn tank itself. Good luck though, I hope he gets back to being a good daddy for you!
