I've never seen nor heard of eggs being transported. My guess is the latter of yours, the eggs were probably eaten and another clutch was laid. I've witnessed egg-eating in many tanks with multiple female pumilio.
In my own opinion, I don't believe switching pumilio males back and forth will help increase breeding activity. As Brent mentioned earlier, males play too critical a role in tad care, deposition, and maintenance to separate from the females. Actually, I think the stress alone from the moves would inhibit breeding to some degree. On the other hand, I'm always curious about new techniques, so it sounds like a very interesting experiment!
