This is either miracle,or completly normal LOL

So my community freshwater 55 consists of 5 emerald cory cats,6 clown loaches under 3 inches.I found some eggs when I got home from work. As far as my loaches are concerned,I have no idea what sex they are.Not that it matters,because I don't think this is about them.That would be the miracle part.

Anyway,I have one known female cory cat and 4 males. The eggs were scattered about on the glass and intakes of my filters. I don't have any extra tanks around so I ran up to petco and grabbed one of those little net box breeder boxes to keep the others from eating them. I want to know what chance I have of them actually hatching without me doing anything other than my normal tank routine which is weekly 50% PWC.

Ammonia Nitrite - 0
Nitrate - 20 (its already 10 out the tap)
PH 7.8
Temp - 82

When I did my last PWC, I didn't properly temp match as I normally get it within 1 degree going back into the tank, the water going in was 76ish degrees and Ive read that can be enough to get cories to spawn.

I was able to save 40-50 eggs. Anyone have any input?

Well it looks like most have succumbed to white fungus.Ill remove them when I get home from work,but it looks like a little bunch of them on a leaf are still ok.Anyone think they might hatch?
