What do you have running it? I picture there is an air stone about 4-5 inches above? I've seen some tumblers that lift the eggs off the bottom a little bit every once in a while causing them to roll a bit. You just want to make sure you are getting fresh oxygenated water in there and up past the eggs. I suppose as long as you keep an eye out for any white fungus, they should be ok. If you see any rot or fungus on an egg, remove that egg completely.

I would say it's iffy if there is enough flow around them... you may want to increase it just a bit so that the eggs sorta gently roll and float around just a tad bit.

Try lowering the tube further into the tumbler, or lowering the tumbler deeper into the tank (while keeping the top above the water line if there are holes) or a combination of the two.

That looks like the one I had many years ago but the kind I have now is different never used one that. Was as wide as this before. Mine doesn't move that much I think I need a better air pump I got a cheap 15 dollar one
