You don’t want the parents to raise them? I know some people use a turkey baster. I’d be afraid of damaging them.

Syphon them into the new tank or container to move them into the new tank - air line tubing, turkey baster, or pipette are the easiest ways to move them.
If you don't shake them they will be fine.
Leave some with the parents so they don't argue over the whole spawn suddenly going missing.

Yeah I am afraid of damaging them I'm probably going to just leave them but I was wondering if there was a safe way to move them, there's other fish in the tank and I don't want them eaten when they are old enough to freely swim

Unless you are moving them dry the methods i mentioned above will not hurt them.

I do know you can trust the advice @Mcasella gave. She’s actually done this. Good luck with your new bbs!
