If he didn't fertilize them when they spawn then they won't hatch!

Can you still see the eggs? as FB posted they may not have been fertilized or one of the breeders could be sterile.
If the male did not tend the nest in the beginning-something was wrong-the male should be under the nest tending an mouthing the eggs rarely leaving the nesting site.

the eggs are still visible. We think that fallen leaves might have been neglecting thenest because of how badly the female hurt him. (bleeding,fins ripped,ect) Dead Sunlight said that he is normally near his nest in the morning but lingers around the tank the rest of the day.

If they haven't hatched by now I'd say the spawning was unsuccessful.

that means the male is not cleaning them, and that's probably the problem!

NO, NO, No, NO, I didn't say that.

Ok, so I know that this spawn has been unsucessful, but I think it was because he was steril, because in previous spawning attempts, I saw Queenie release 2 eggs that he brought to the nest, and he didn't eat them (they we're still there) couple days later, they still didn't hatch.
