These were found just now in my flowerhorn tank. There is a white tube like thing coming out of fish's anus too. If these are fish eggs then what precaution do I need to take in order to breed them? Do I need to separate eggs and fish? I've started corner(bubble) filter and stopped internal power filter to reduce current. Is it ok? I've only one flowerhorn(probably female) which must have gotten pregnant when she was kept with other 3 flowerhorns at LFS.

Yes these are flowerhorn eggs . Female flowerhorn will keep on laying eggs in regular intervals (in months )and this has to be fertilized by a male flowerhorn . so no question about getting pregnant when it was with LFS .

Do not bring a male flowerhorn just because your female flowerhorn is laying eggs you may be encouraging low quality breeding which is not recommended.
almost every female flowerhorn will lay eggs, it does not matter if there is a male or not.
I would suggest to do some reading on keeping flowerhorns, pairing them, strains etc before experimenting anything....
beware - pairing flowerhorns is not easy, you may loose one of them in the fight that may happen . read more about them.
