Caution is a most valuable asset in fish keeping, especially if you are the fish.

It is common for many seasonal spawners (wet/dry season types) capable of and ready to spawn to do so when moved to a completely new tank. To them its just like changing seasons. This is especially true if the new tank has softer and cleaner water in it. My bet is the change in params triggered your new ones.

And congrats :aok:
What makes the common person uncommon is common sense.

I raised several like that without probs, also lost some...
Guess now only time will tell, nothing more you can do, just make shure there is sufficient flow in the hatcher and keep the hatcher clean.
Good luck.
Greetings,
John
