I'm assuming the Plecos would snack on the Angelfish fry.
Is that correct?
How many Angelfish fry? I might consider moving guppies to ten gallon and Angelfish fry to your 29 gal if this is still your stocking in 29 gallon and angelfish fry are more than 10 or 12.
Often times fishes spawn and we are not perhaps ready for resulting fry. Other's encourage fishes to spawn with no plan at all for fry. Angelfish are hard to sex, but mating behaivor is pretty evident which should give hobbyist's a clue that fry may be in the future and plan's can be made hopefully before fry arrive.(Seperate the pair(s) or provide spawning,rearing tank).
If male and females are present,and water quality is good, I believe spawning and rearing of fry should be considered beforehand so that a plan is in place.
I doubt the young Bristlenose would harm the fry by attempting to eat them, but some have been reported to attach themselves to fishes like Discus,and Angelfish. Although I have not seen it.. It is something to consider.
