    Do you have a male in the tank? If not, just clean them out of there and toss them.

    They aren't fertilized so they wont hatch.

    Yup. ACF mate with amplexus. To simplify it - the male hugs the female around the waist from behind, they swim around - his hugging "squeezes" out the eggs while they swim and he fertilizes them out side of her body while they fall to the nearest surface.
