My clowns laid eggs this past Thursday, somtime in the afternoon. So is day 8 this Thursday? Or is it Friday?
Should I remove the eggs tomorow (Thursday) or Friday?

Try watching the male every evening. If he is really active at cleaning the nest then I would guess that will be the night. This takes some practice and experience but it's a start.
When you do this try to spy on them and not disturb your pair. If you interupt the pair the male may not pay attention to the nest and look at you.

Can you pull every night from day 6? Then you won't miss your hatch?
If they don't hatch by the morning just throw them back in with the parents. Repeat until you have your babies. Of course if you have a huge rock or something this may get difficult.

They are on a tile. I pulled them the first batc at day 6, and the eggs didnt make it, they got a film on them, I think I didnt have enough air/water movement. So I really wanted it to be the last minute. I will give this one more try, I am sue they will have new eggs by Sunday.

Jut collect when they hatch in the tank. This is the only method I try and it seems to wrok fine. A little bit of a pain though.
