Found corydoras eggs what should I do

I found about 50 corydoras eggs when I came back from school in my 300 litre community tank and I was wondering what to do because I would like to have a go at raising them.

If you have a breeder net or a separate tank, then gently remove the eggs and wait 3-5 days for them to hatch. And when they hatch feed them small foods such as baby brine shrimp or hikari first bites. That's how I'm currently raising my fry. As I had a batch hatch just about a week ago

If they are a little darker like beige, then they are fertilized. Or if they are on the the glass and you see a little dark dot in the middle, then they are
