Angle Fish spawn

Hi guys, i have 4, year old angle fish in my 75 gallon. Around last month they started to get more territorial. About a week ago i saw white object on one of my still aclimating amazon sword leafs. I cut it off and threw it out. Then i came home today to find it again on another leaf exept this time 2 of my angle fish are defending the leaf in the courner of the tank. Is this a spawn? I have a empty 20 gallon with a spong filter. should i cut off the leaf and put the eggs in their? i have a picture..

They did indeed spawn, i think you can cut the leaf out and put it in the 20 but i'm not sure if that hurts the eggs overall, so don't take my word for this.

some times the adults will rase they eggs some times they dont. if the eggs stay clearish they are good if they start turning white they are bad and starting to fungus. i just pulled my first angel eggs in december. i used a couple drops h2o2 in the water and did that a couple times a day since h2o2 breaks down in light. keep an air stone right around the eggs to keep good water flow over them.

link to how i tried pulling eggs

i only saved 4 but for fist time pulling i figure it was good to save any
