Angels 2nd batch in a community

First time my angels laid they sll made it to 5 days and i bumped the leaf they wrre on and fish went after them. Mom and dad saved some but next day they were gone. This is in a community and their the biggest fish. Whatre the chances they make it to free swimming? Setting up a breeding tanks not possible right now.

The chance of eggs surviving is very small, the chance of fry surviving is even lower.

Most fish are either carnivores, or omnivores so by nature they will eat any fish that will fit in their mouth, even perfectly peaceful community fish. Angels are pretty good in that they take care of their eggs, while most other fish will eat their own eggs. However, those eggs, and any fry that hatch, will be live food for everything else in the tank.

Angels, if threatened, are also known to eat their own eggs to prevent anyone else from getting them.

Nature being nature though, there is always the chance of someone surviving, but I wouldn't count on it.

Yea, if you really want to hatch and rear the fry, you'll need to pull the eggs. Just make sure you know what you'll do with all the fry you might be able to rear, Angels have a lot! Took me a full year and lots of temporary tank space to re-home all of the 36 angelfish fry I raised.

Good deal, if you can get some cash per fish. At a minimum you should break even!
