Help! eggs in the tank

hi guys, my partner has had her tank 3 weeks, it has 4 dannios, and 3 corys, today iv noticed 4 eggs, or i assume they are eggs, one of the dannios was quite fat and is now alot slimmer so i assume it has layed these eggs, 3 are on the glass at 1 side of the tank, 1 at the other, what should we do now, iv had my own tank 6 months and as all my fish appear to be male iv never had eggs before, so im now stuck as to what to do, i have no equipment for looking after fry, except my emergancy tank that is currently only being used to grow plants

In all honesty, the eggs probably wont survive. If they do hatch the danios will probably eat them within seconds, or the cories will get them if they actually make it to the bottom of the tank.

What color are they btw? If they turn white, they are growing fungus and should be immoved right away.

why not carefully remove them using a razor blade and put them on a leaf
in the little tank and see what happens ?

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
