Long nosed loach aka horse faced loach

I have a pair of long nosed loaches (acantopsis diaiuzona). The female is very ripe with eggs, she almost waddles! Anyone with any experience with these fish, please contact me. I need to know how to induce them to spawn (so she doesn't split!) and where they might spawn. Being a substrate digging fish, will they lay the eggs under the gravel? In a cave? Under plant leaves? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance, Fara
