Whoopsies! Corydoras trilineatus spawned.. now what?

I have four little cories in a heated, filtered 10g tank, with a betta, a mystery snail, and some ghost shrimp. I noticed one bigger cory was getting really fat. I got home today, and there are little white eggs all over the hornwort in my tank, and the fat cory is much less fat.
I'm not really interested in breeding, so what do I do? Just leave it? This is my first aquarium and I didn't really anticipate this happening. Help!

I think you should keep them! But you need more tanks and a lot of other stuff. There are a lot of breeders on this forum that can help you more than me but you have to want to do it. It will cost time and money.

hello there
just leave them if you don't want to be bothered
if they do hatch the shrimp will probably pick them off before they drop
into the substrate.
there is plenty of articles in the breeding section if you change your mind,
now they have spawned it will be an on going thing.

Gosh, Ghost Shrimps are so ruthless. I say just leave them to Darwin's theory. Those who do survive, will. While the weaker ones aren't so lucky.
Personally, I would completely go against that and go all out to make every last baby live, but as you said, you did not plan on the babies. So don't worry yourself too much! Keep us updated! I might want some of them for my tank later on.
