Do these Oscar eggs look fertile?!?
So my pair of Oscars laid eggs in my big aquarium that has plecos, a jack dempsey and a shark in it with them. After seeing the jack dempsey waiting for a turn at the eggs, I decided to take all the other fish out. While trying to do this, the shark disturbed the nest and flung eggs all over. A lot of eggs were stuck to a piece of decor so I salvaged what eggs that I could and put them in a 10 gallon tank (for now). I need opinions on whether you think these are fertile. In my honest opinion they look fertile from what I have seen and read, but this is also my first time. Any help is appreciated. These eggs were laid the morning of 12/29. Here are a couple pics:
A closer look:
In the next pic, the ones circled in red almost look like they have some of the fungus on them, but I am no expert.. The one with the black arrow looks like it may not be fertile?
Of the ones circled with black - one looks fertile one doesn't. Opinions please?? The others look fertile in my opinion.
Please give me advise, this is a first with Oscar eggs, however I have always owned Oscars. I also have another question. Since the eggs were not on a slate, I could not put the air underneath the eggs to fan them. There is an air bar in the back of the tank. Any opinions are welcome! I need help lol!

Even if they are fertile currently, I believe they will fungus and turn infertile soon if their parents are no longer taking care of the eggs.
