Bloodfin tetras dropping eggs. What is next?

Recently purchased a few bloodfin tetras. Within a week the chubby one paired up and is now dropping eggs every 15 mins or do by jumping out of the water.

Most eggs are making it to the bottom and disappearing in my dwarf baby tears.

What are my odds that these will hatch and then grow? Any tips? From what I have read its no easy task.

I do not have a separate tank or breeding box. I don't really want to get another tank or add a big box to my small tank.

My tank is 10 gals. 5 degrees hardness gh and kh. Lots of plants and nitrates always below 10.

Not yet. Nothing has come up yet so I assume no luck. I'll keep an eye out though.

These guys are eating snails so I'm sure they would eat the fry if there were ever any.
