Remove the pipe or slate containing the eggs once they're done. If you have a spare tank, use it for the eggs to hatch. A sponge filter and an airpump connected with an airstone will help here. Methylene blue should be added as well to prevent development of fungus.

First-time spawners tend to eat the eggs but that is no reason to worry about. They will spawn again and will eventually become good parents.
