Khuli loach pregnant. What do I do?

I wasn't expecting them to breed at all, so I'm very unsure what to do to help the fry.
They are in a 45 gallon tank, planted with driftwood. Other fish are just mollies and then two ghost shrimps.
I don't know how long she's been holding eggs (they hide so much lol). Any help is appreciated! I'd love to help the babies live, it would be great to have more loachies!

Hi there, how are they doing? A PM to Sinibotia and he may be able to assist here.

As with most loaches, breeding loaches is very rare in the home aquarium, much less successfully.

This is likely a case of bloating. If not, just know is highly unlikely any offspring would survive.

I remember reading that it is hard to breed them, and I thought she was simply fat until I looked up pictures of pregnant ones and she looked similar.
I'm not trying to breed them, it was rather a surprise if she isnt expecting then that's fine. If she ever comes back out I can take her picture lol
