What do I do?!

Last night before I went to bed 2 of my angels were messing with the intake tube on my filter. I thought they were sucking algae off of it.
However, to my surprise I woke to find tons of little eggs on the tube with them fussing over the eggs.
How long till they hatch?
What should I do?

Here's a good description of the spawning/hatching/rearing process, with a short video to illustrate:

What you do depends upon whether or not you want the fry. But be advised that the first few spawnings of young angels are usually not successful as they tend to eat the eggs or the fry themselves.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
