Eggs! What to do...

So I woke up today and lo and behold there are clusters of eggs on the side of my tank. As soon as I started looking closely at them, one of my angels came over and ate them all. I was a little disappointed, but I went to school and I came back and now I see two more in the same place. My corys have been going wild all day, and I believe after watching them that they are cory eggs. Is there any way I can protect them from my angels or are they pretty much just going to serve as treats?

Man, I feel so sorry for the corys...I've watched them come over and lay eggs about 3 or 4 times now, and as soon as they do the angels fight over eating them.

you could make a divider to keep the big fish away. you may even want to keep the parents in there for a bit.. do a little reading on the breeding habits of cory's to be sure but a divider will certainly help

maybe put the cory's in a breeding tank or put the angels in another tank until they hatch.

you could gently roll the eggs off the glass, and put them into something like a pickle jar with an airstone and float it in your tank so it keeps the same water temperature.
