Need advice with angelfish - breeding question

I have a group of 6 angelfish in a 55 gallon aquarium. Been waiting for signs of pairing off so that I can pull 4 out and try to breed them. They are upwards of 3", getting really beefy, so I've been expecting something soon. Little problem though. They love attention. As soon as anyone clears the door in the room they are in, they start prancing about at the glass, showing off.

Are there any signs of pairing off other that the obvious behavioral ones? I'm afraid that I am missing it because they are all so happy to see me.

Don't worry even if you miss the signs of them pairing. I had eight Angelfish plus a dozen guppies in a 55. Two of them paired up and took over one side of the tank. They proceeded to lay about 200 eggs on a plant leaf. After that batch I moved them into their own 55 and they bred about every 3 to 4 weeks. I would condition them with frozen blood worms and 20% water changes. I kept 4 guppies in with them so they had something to chase besides each other. Good luck.
Check out the video of the pair breeding.
