angel eggs

I have a 72 gallon bow front tank that has 5 mature angelfish and 1 plecko. About 2 months ago when i came home,I noticed that the angels had laid eggs on the filter intake tube. I took some pictures and then the angels started to eat all the eggs!! Last week I did my routine water change and cleaning. A few days after, I saw the angels cleaning the filter intake tube. After they cleaned the tube the male and female began to lay eggs and fertilize them. I watched this until they were done. After they finished,they began to start eating the eggs. When I saw this, I removed the intake tube and placed it in a holding tank. Over the next 2 days the eggs shrank and turned white. I would like to breed the angels but so far I dont know how i can keep the eggs alive. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Kevin
