Albino Brisltlenose Pleco Spawn!

Hello everyone. Ive had 2 female albino bristlenose plecos in my 75g community for a few years now. I recently added a mature male and right away he was playful with one of the females. They chose a cave and havent came out for a couple days. This morning I noticed the female is out and looking a lot skinnier. The male still hasnt left the cave and seems to be guarding it so im pretty sure they spawned. I have an extra 10 gallon tank. Will the eggs and fry make it in my community tank? Or should I move the cave along with the eggs and their parents to the 10 gallon? Thank you for reading.

If you have an established filter already then moving them will be ok. Just have a game plan on what to do with them once they grow up if they survive :P

I'm not into the image, but into the hobby...
