Angry Betta breeding in community tank.. what should i do???

woke up this morning to see my couple Betta's mating in the community tank. should i remove them? cause one of my Black Widow Tetra is enjoying the eggs falling down from the nest. My population consist of 2 Black Widow Tetra, 1 Albinos Corydoras(catfish), and 2 Kulhih and the male and female betta.

Of course !! You have to remove that (2 Black Widow Tetra,2 Kulhih) and the female Betta too. Because they all eat the egg if got chance. Or you may put one separator (glass,plastic board) to protect the egg being eaten on the tank (which divided the tank as two environ.) While tending the egg,the male betta is very fragile as long as it won't eat the food at few days.

Also,next time,when you have plan to breeding Betta,the tank should be just having Betta couple but other species. Its hindsight,I know,thus convenient.

Yeah,but just so you know when you put a male and female Betta on the same tank,they would go loving each other eventually..............
