One of my male BN is harbouring his eggs in his cave I'm just curious whether I should move them. They're in a tank with about 12 corys 6 peppered 6 Julii and about 8 or so other BN 6 female 2 male and 8 rummynoses.

No worries, plecos dads are good egg tenders and wiggler watchers. If they think letting the free swimmers out is dangerous, they will even try to keep them in the cave longer to grow more.
Shouldn't be any issue. As said above, they're great parents and will look after them well.
Thought so as I had 12 that managed to survive in my community tank which has all kinds of hazards.
