I have 2 angelfish that have paired and laid there first batch of eggs the other day. I only noticed a few days ago that they had paired lol. They are now in my 90L tank and choose the filter to put their eggs on. Getting a slate for next time as i ahve read that it is roughyl 2-3 weeks between the first and second batch of eggs.
I bought 30 angelfish fry in janurary and really enjoyed raising them. One of the angels who have paired is one of the oens i raised. I'm just letting them do it naturally to see how it goes. They've taken me by surprise as i wasn't expecting to have a pair. I currently have 7 angels and did have 8 but i lost one a month back. It was one of the ones i raised myself and it was smaller than the others. It gave me alot of joy to raise them. 3 of my angels are too small to be with the bigger ones hence why i won't be raising a batch myself for a while as i only have 3 tanks, the smallest being the spare lol. Once my 3 small ones are big enough to be with my bigger ones then i may just save some eggs and raise some again.
Angels are beautiful fish and by far my faviourite species in tropical fish.
