Question white cloud breeding

I have a 10 gallon tank with 5 neon tetras, 3 white clouds and 1 cory cat. One of the white clouds is pregnant. The other 2 seem to be males. i dont know when the female is going to lay the eggs. Should i add extra plants? Also will the other fish eat the eggs if they are layed?

The other fish will eat the eggs. They are egg scatters and the cory and neons will most likely eat them.

breeding traps are death traps imo.

on that page that Joy13 linked to, it suggests that java moss is a good addition, the clouds like to breed in it. I've seen that with some of my other egg scatterers; the moss gives the fry a place to hide out. So you could try some of that. Just be prepared to trim it back now and then.
