In most cases it will be planeria and other detritus eaters that like egg fats and don't stop at the thin casing to get them.

Along with treating the water and the airline I would suggest setting a small bag made from a new pair of pantyhose full of peat right by the opening to the airline. Doesn't have to be much,maybe 2 Tablespoons of peat. This will keep fungus off of the eggs until they hatch, then remove the peatbag and install the well-seeded sponge filter using the same airline.
after the fry eat their eggsack and start feeding, you have to setup a 20 gallon 'Growout tank' to move them into. You have, at most, maybe three weeks to do this.So, you'll need more than one seasoned sponge filter. After they eat the eggsack, baby brine shrimp or Daphnia make a good feed until they are old enough to take prepared foods.
