Thank you David for your help. It had been since I was a kid that I had Angelfish fry. I could not remember what I did but remember not be successful. I remember that some of them got stuck in the gravel. It came to my memory yesterday. That can be an issue too. I may not have had another take to put them in and the parents may have eaten them later on in the process. I just can't remember what I did. I think I do remember one time taking the eggs out and trying to hatch them myself and had to use the blue stuff and a air stone to keep the eggs from getting fungus. I never did get to raise them beyond very young fry.
Boy, last night was a pain. I went to the store and got a netted fry cage. I came home and muddled over how I was going to get them in it. I was unsure how well they would stick to the leaf if I cut it and moved it at the wiggle stage. Without getting into all the details, it took four times to get them all in there. The first time I put my hands in there and man they attacked me. It sure made me jump. It does not hurt but it just scares you and makes you jump. That time I used manicure scissors. The few that the mom put in her mouth real quick and the ones that she caught that fell a bit, she put them on another leaf and some fell to another leaf. She is really good. The male helped too. So, the next time, I remembered I had the long cutters for plants. I did not want her to get hurt going at me with the manicure scissors since the second time she was really ready to go at me. My daughter cut the leaf while I had a net this time. We had to do it again for the third leaf. By this time I had all the babies in the net. I thought I would just leave the net in so I did not have to move them to another tank which I htought would be more stressful on the young. The problem was, they found them in the cage net and were still agressive to my other fish. I thought that I would leave them in there overnight and worry about it today. Well, a few minutes went by and I noticed there were some wigglers on a leaf. I figured she found then in the gravel....she was looking for them. But, that was not it. We noticed that she was sucking them out of the cage from the bottom through the tiny holes. These holes are tiny but needed so debree does not get trapped in the cage. I can't believe she figured this out and could get them through there without hurting them. They were wiggling fine on the leaf. I could not win!
So, we had to do it one more time and after we got them in the cage I put them in the 14 gallon tank upstairs in the cage. They are still wiggling this morning. They may start swimming today. I hope they live. If not, maybe next time.
I started to set up my other large tank so I can get the pair out of the main tank. I meant to do this a long time ago but just did not get around to it. I will have to wait of course to get the tank cycled but it will not take too long since I will have some live plants from the main tank, main tank wanter and main tank live bacteria debree, etc.
I will keep you posted. I did do some research on here and saw that they have a fry jar that you can buy with a kit setup so you can keep them in the same tank. I will see how the parents raise them next time on their own and if they eat the fry, I will try the jar or net cage again. I think the jar looks to be the best bet. They may end up being the type of parents who will actually raise their fry and not eat them. They were determined!
