I had given up on this pair. The male picks the eggs off almost as quickly as the female lays them. This has happened since April. Eggs are still there after one day maybe a good sign.

I use imgur.com to upload them to a free account and then just click on the insert an image button to put the link in that they give you and it'll post. You can try the image upload button but I think that has some pretty severe limitations on file size.

The eggs should hatch tonight it's day 9. I don't know whither to save them or wait for the next, It was a small egg cluster only 200-250 and it was their first successful spawn.

That's awesome Shaun. Looks like a small clutch. The first ones are usually weak and not many live with my pairs, but I have to save them and try... hahah.
