I don't see many options without removing the fish. Cory's as well as the barbs will eat eggs.
Have seen cory's (females) lay eggs and others , (cory's) came along behind and scarfed em up.
They do seem to like to lay the eggs on the glass but will also lay a fair amount of eggs on wood as well as plant leaves. Problem is ,as you have prolly noted,they aren't all that easy to see on leaves of plants compared to the glass. They will almost always lay the eggs on the underside of plant leaves.
Maybe if you spot some on the leaves of plants,you could pull the plant with eggs attached and place it in a tank with close to same parameters.
Otherwise,, if young cory's were my aim, I might consider purchasing a group and placing them in a tank with sparse decor to make removing the eggs or fish easier.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

Actually 1077 I came in a few morning ago and there was a group of eggs on one of the floating pennywort leaves, so I snatched it right into the net and then it went in with the RCS farm about 3 days later the eggs where 'gone' assuming hatched cause I know from other eggs that the RCS don't touch them so chances are there's lil cory's hiding out in the shrimp tank now but being as dense as it is I'd not see them until after they're a lil bigger/ more visible.
