My cory cats layed eggs and I need help

My Cory cats layed eggs within the last 36 hours and I would like to keep the survival rate as high as possible for the eggs. so the hard part is my corys are in a 125 gallon turtle tank with a few tetras and one turtle and I'm not sure if I should try to take the eggs out and put them in a separate container with a airstone and heater or put Sponge over the filter intakes and add plants I just don't really know what I'm doing and would like any advice you have to offer

Your chances of success will rise if you remove the eggs and hatch out in a shallow tank or container.

Congrats, this is always exciting.
I would definitely separate the eggs. If setting up another tank is not an option take a look at Marina breeder box - hangs on your aquarium, doesn't need separate filtration easier to feed the fry with BBS later on.

what I have done is
scrape eggs off glass with razor
place in a Dip and Pour with two drops Meth Blue
add air stone
Once wigglers, use small cup to cycle out about two cups a day with fresh Dechlor. water for a couple days.
when free swimming feed BBS or Micrworms
Continue to cycle out container everday (about two cups)
