Bronze Cory Cats laid lots of eggs.. What to do?

Alright, my 25 gal tank just cycled and I added three broze cory cats. That was on Saturday. It seemed as though two of them were doing what I thought was a mating dance even though they had just moved to a new tank and where very stressed. Well I guess they need to do what they need to do. Nature calls.

I just saw a ton of eggs all over the DW. They are in little sacks in clutches of 20 or so. Tiny white eggs. There are at least 9 of these sacks, probably more that I can't see! They are currently the only fish in the tank besides to amano shrimp and a few snails.

The temp is 79-80.

So if any hatch, what should I do with them?

Are you sure they aren't snail eggs?

I don't know. My nerites lay them all over the place. Mystery snails lay them above the water line. I don't know what pond snails do. I just wanted to throw out that possibility. It's definitely worthy of googling Cory cat reproduction and snail egg laying habits.
