Female GBR spawned without male, what to do?

I bought 2 female GBRs four days ago. Today, I find one female spawned many eggs on an Amazon Sword leaf and she is guarding it. Since no male, I guess the eggs will never hatch. Should I remove the eggs or just leave them? Thanks for your help!

I'd let her have at the eggs. It's part of their genetic signature to remove the eggs once they realize there is no chance of them being fertilized. She may also bump your hand around a bit if you go in after them. If they are not all gone by the next day, you will need to remove them.
