Question on Eggs and Fry

This morning I saw little fry tail sticking out of the bubble nest and several eggs. Now around 12 hours later there are more fry but still alot of eggs. Does this mean those eggs are duds? shouldnt they have all hatched since the parents paired in the 8 and half hour window while I was at work.

Temp is at 83 I have a very rough estimate more of a guess really of a 100 fry tails and 100 to 150 eggs.

Not necessarily. Dad probably would have ate duds. How long ago did they breed?

I released the female on the 3rd but not until late at night around 11:30 Pm the next morning around 5:30 am there were no eggs that I personally noticed dosnt mean they werent there I just didnt see them. At 4pm ish on the 4th There where eggs. I noticed tail today which was confusing as I thought it would take two days but I keep a towel over the top of the tank so there is alot of humidity for the fry maybe that is why they hatched so soon.

Temp plays a large part. The later spawned eggs may take quite a bit longer to hatch. And when they do they most likely will be the last to free swim.
