Coolie Loach (Acathophthalmus kuhli): breeding

I have 4 kuhlis and one is carrying eggs, I have created some water conditions that stimulate the loaches into there natural breeding habits, such as those that they would encounter in the wild like a drought(increased sunlight, concentrated algae and a higher PH level). The female is in hiding under the gravel and her feeding habits have slowed down. Does any one know anything about the eggs and whether I should separate her from the others. or how long till they turn to fry? will she lay them on plants or in the gravel? this is a rare fish to breed in captivity so if any one has any information to assist me in this project it would be of great help.
