Egg Eating

Is it possible that egg eating is related to temperature? I have a male, that last spawn ate all the eggs. I bumped the temperature up 5 degrees from 24.5 to 29.5. So far, it looks like he is depositing the eggs in the nest but I am collecting some just in case. Could this be right?

29 deg is well within normal tropical temperatures. I still think they eat eggs which are either infertile or not developing properly. However if you suspect a serial egg eater then just remove him. Last time I did that I still had a decent hatch. Some eggs floated some sank a few fungused. But still got a good hatch.
