Will this be sufficient for the eggs to hatch?

I don't want to add chemicals to my tank, and read that water flow will help prevent fungus. So I took an old syphon and (as you can see) cut it in half. One end is laying in the filter (providing fresh water from the filter to the breeder net) and the other as you can see is laying over the lip of the net, and without having to anchor it! I also added an air stone to be safe. The Vertical half of the cylinder is to prevent oxygen and gases from collecting on the bottom of the net and making it float, since it's in front of the filter.

How long should I wait to transfer then into my old 10gal? I have to set it up, buy filters, and a heater for my 20gal as I realized last night that the heater died...! So my heater for my 10gal is in my 20gal and to my surprise is working just fine and has my water from 65ish (last night) to 80 this evening.

I guess it was sufficient as today I am a "grandma". A bunch of my eggs have hatched. All I can count is 6 so far since they blend in with the net and are really quick for looking like fat mosquito larvae..... I'm so excited!
