If she is heavy with eggs theirs not much you can do, she will either lay them in the substrate or if in her salt drinking water if your providing any.The eggs wont hatch in the substrate they will just dry up and die which will make the tank stink, if she deposits them in the salt water the water will immediately invade the egg casings and cause the tiny zoea to float free unfortunately they wont live long maybe two days at most because they require a special diet of phyto plankton which can't be easily found..
