Deformed/undeveloped stillborn fry is the most likely bet. Possibly caused by stress to the female but could've been caused by a number of factors. I wouldn't consider it a problem unless it happened regularly.

Possibly stress, Lioness? I am inclined to add more plants for her to find refuge while trying to drop her fry.

I have been trying to find some pics I had but it is no use, they are on my other dead computer.

As for the eggs, I have had swords that i raised from fry that will do the same thing. Thier first 3-5 batches were noting more than empty, unfertilized eggs. I had them in the net breeder and the eggs were still layed infertile. I have seen that until a female is comfortable with the male, she won't let them near enough. It might also have to do with a bodily thing that the first eggs are not viable.

Don't give up hope, give her some time and make sure she is comfortable and sooner or later the eggs will be viable and you won't know what to do with all the fry.
