Probably she will spit or swallow those egss. And probably the best solution find a male bigger than your dominant female and introduce to your tank. If you dont have any male in your tank then pick 2 new males. But be sure bigger than dom female

i think the same thing happened in my duboisi tank. my two biggest duboisi are females and the rest of the group doesn't seem to be quite sexually mature yet but are getting close. they're to the age that i can distinguish some males now anyway that are getting more and more aggreisive.

Sounds like she is jump starting the breeding.

I have a few Ilangi females that will do the same thing but eventually they will start the "circling" with a male and at that time the male fertilizes the eggs.

Is this a mix tank?

What do you mean by bumping the female out of position?
