Loaches have been known to eat some eggs from time to time, i would just let nature take its course unless you want to keep the eggs then i would suggest taking the log out and putting it in a qt or doing the same with the loaches.

CA broncofan is right. best separating the loaches from the eggs if you actually want to keep them otherwise just watch and hope that at least a few will survive. they usually will if they manage to hatch and there are plenty of hidey holes

If you can keep them from getting eaten. You will have some new ones running around.

the male should guard them until they hatch and get big enough to leave. after the other fish might eat them. maybe set up another tank if you wan to breed them.
