Is there any way I can save the eggs from the community tank without damaging them

I do this all the time. If they are on a leaf, cut the leaf and carefully lift it out and put it in another tank..try to use the same water from the original tank. make sure there is air movement gently over the eggs and add some methylyn blue if you can. I raise half my angels this way, as angels don't always make good parents.

I never done it with Angels, but maybe with a razor blade you may be able to get some eggs without damaging them. I'd like to hear others experience as well.

Took a turkey baster and sucked them off the glass as best I could fingers crossed they survive. Put a flat piece of rock just below where they played them so maybe the next batch will be easier to relocate :)

I have seen people talk about methylene blue. What exactly is it and how does it help?

It is a chemical that comes in liquid or powder form.
