Clown Loach eggs! What next?

Fishfad

Hey Guys, New here and wanted some help. Came home to this clutch of Clown Loach eggs! Any suggestions on how to keep them viable as from what I’ve read they are pretty special? Some seem clear but others have little yolks in them so hopefully fertilsed! I’m really not too aquarium savvy however have managed to breed albino Bristlenose like rabbits. Any tips would be awesome.

Doesn't look like clown loach spawn. They are egg scatterers, but this is a clutch. What else do you have in that tank?

Looks more like a clutch of bristlenose eggs.
How big are the loaches?

My Bristlenose are extremely predictable! He has his little cave and that’s the same place they lay every time!
Loach is about 8-9cm and I bought a second one a couple of weeks ago. About 7cm. They have been bumping on each other. At first I thought they were fighting…. Then this?

They are definitely too young to breed then.
Likely something made the bristlenose abandon this clutch and it ended up outside the cave.
