A number of things could have happened to the eggs. The other fish could have eaten the eggs, or the parents themselves. It's actually quite normal for the parents to eat their first few spawns. Especially, when they are young. They get the hang of it after a few attempts. It is also a possibility that you do have two females, but what you are seeing is normal with male/female as well. You can visually see the female laying eggs, but you don't actually see anytihng come out of the male, except for him brushing over the eggs with his papilla. If the eggs are not fertilized, they will turn white within 24 hours. Some will naturally do this from not being fertilized properly, but most will remain pinkish clear.

Yeah, I realize a nummber of things could have happened to the eggs. Oh well, the fish are still young, and, hopefully, their future breeding attempts will be successful IF they are a pair. At least, I now know what to look for next time, thanks to you guys. I've uploaded a couple of pix under "Aquariums" as well as provided some info on my tanks. Please visit.

My angels have paired off they been nipping at any of the other fish that come there way and one has a fat buldging stomic so i put them in my 30 gallon tank just them no other fish and some plants an slate hoping they will spawn if they are a pair :) wish me luck!, and also to Lisa have you ever thought about putting a divider in your commuinity tank with your angels when they span so you would have a large ammount of the tank just for the fry when they start free swimming atleast one of the spawns? just to see how big they would get?
