If you want to raise the fry you would need to tumble the eggs and many of us don't want that.

In some cases the eggs are not fertilized and it might be irritating to tumble eggs that are duds. Usually the mom will spit eggs that are not fertilized after a week so waiting that long might save you the occasional waste of time.

I find it easier just to make sure there are enough females in the tank for the male to harass and leave the mom in the tank for 18 days.
