Clown Loach Vs Tetras

I got a good number of Tetras and I feel one of my Neon is i the stage of laying eggs. I have one clown loach and 1 corridos in the tank. Will they feed on the eggs of Neon?

Thanks in advance.

Yes. All fish, including the neon tetra themselves, will readily devour any eggs they can find. Getting neon tetra to spawn is not easy. Are you noticing spawning behaviours?

A comment on your loach and cory, they are shoaling fish that must be kept in groups, 5-6 or more, as they are highly social fish. Clown loach get large though, up to a foot, and need a 6-foot tank. Cory are fine in a small group in much smaller tanks. You can read more in our profiles, click on the shaded name to see that fish's profile.
