it should be fine, let him sort it out. I had a similar spawn, my boy destroyed his nest while trying to embrace the female. All the eggs were on the floor for a while, but he slowly picked them all up and they hatched =). I ended with 100+ fry. so just let him do his thing.
Hope you have something on the surface for him to put his bubbles on, if you already do, add some more it will help.
I had ial and water lettuce floating, but the nest in there just all popped. I added a paper cup after a while, and he remade his nest in there.
