Is this his first time raising young? I had my first timer young male do the same thing but with all his eggs. I collected the first couple dozen I saw but during the night he kicked out the rest and the upside down catfish and bettas ate them all. If you want, you can grab the stray eggs and raise them yourself, an air stone above them for water flow is all they need until they hatch and absorb their yolk.

This is his second that I know of, I bought him and 2 female as adults. If the eggs are moving slightly but still have most the yolk will they still get the bacteria on them?

I forgot to mention, in a little clutch of eggs there are some that are not fertilized. Could he have just pushed them out and accidently got the fertal ones too? It seems like a lot to mistake.
