Salvini building with rocks

The salvini in my 125 gallon has been building a lot with rocks the last couple days. I'm pretty sure it's a female because of the spot on her gill cover and bluish black on her dorsal fin.

Anyway, in one corner of the tank she has piled up rocks about an inch high and about 3 inches wide along the side of the tank. Is she planning on laying eggs? Or is she just bored and "beautifying" her territory? I'm just curious because I've never seen this before and it's kinda fun to watch!!

Ok, so the Salvini laid some eggs today and we think the Texas tried to fertilize them. This is the first time we've ever had eggs so we don't really know what to do!! We put a tank divider in to keep the rest of the fish away.

What else should we do? Is there really much chance the Texas could even fertilize the eggs? And if he did, how long til we have fry?
