Honestly I'm not expecting much the first spawn even if they do so I'm not extremely prepared. If need be I will go out and purchase a 10 gallon tank and some stuff for it. And I may use Hikari first bites. Think some will live? I don't have room to raise the majority of the babies anyways. Or is it better to have more survive to be able to cull more to keep the very best... Hmm

So I'd be removing ~5 gal. Can I just add 5 gal worth of prime you think?


Also I wonder if it's possible they spawned and ate it while I was not watchingv

It's possible but there has to be a reason that they would eat their own eggs.... either they don't feel safe, they are hungry or the eggs are infertile. Unless you see eggs and then they disappear on you, it's hard to know for sure.

Yes, it would be hard to know for sure. There is 6 other angelfish in there so maybe they feel insecure. Still I doubt they'd eat them that quickly, huh? I'd probably see some.

Also, as soon as I did the small water change I immediately noticed them become a bit more active cleaning the leaf than they had been and became more agressive again. Hmmmm! But then they had to go to bed.

You may want to lay a piece of slate vertically to entice them to lay eggs on it so you could remove it afterwards... might be difficult getting the eggs out if they do lay on a leaf. Although you can't force them to lay where you want but maybe giving them a nice laying site might influence their decision.

I will have to take a slate out of my other tank and put it in there. (:

They still are hanging around together, chasing fish away (though less severely), and picking at leaves all day together. But the dark one's breeding tube is completely back in.... And I never saw the zebra's tube in the first place. :/

Funny thing with breeding fish, you pay all the attention in the world to them they won't spawn. Half ignore them for a few days or a week, they breed. The ones you want to spawn won't, the ones you aren't looking to breed will.

Haha true! I was on spring break this week. I'm expecting they'll probably spawn as soon as I go back to school and start getting busy and paying less attention to them.
