Erm, there are eggs in my tank...!

I noticed last night that one of my bronze catfish was really bloated. It still seemed ok other than that so I left it alone. Today there are clusters of eggs dotted around the tank! There's probably about 50 eggs in total, some clear and some white. I'm not sure if they have been fertilised, I've read that if they turn white they are not fertilised and if they turn brown/black then they have been fertilised, is that right? I'm not sure what to do for the best. Should I move them into a hatchery or leave them? How do you move them without damaging them?

I've attached pictures.

Help!

I think the odds are they won't be fertilized, if not I would just vacuum them up.
