    Ok, there's a nice big lump of bristlenose eggs - outside the cave guarded by the male. Was that a careless error by him? Or has he rejected them? Should I push it back in the cave for him, or leave him to it?

    I did push it back to the cave entrance, at which point he finished the job and moved them inside.
