Do angelfish get eggy?
I've talked about it in threads before, so I'll keep it short. I adopted some practically full sized angelfish from someone who kept them in a 5 gallon tank with a swordtail and a cory (which i also adopted, and adopted the tank too!) I thought one angel had fuzzies going on, so i pulled it out, and treated it for about a week. It looked better, and temperatures were kinda low, so I stuck it back in the 29 gallon with the other angel, and rest of the community.
Once I put the fish I treated back in the 29, I noticed within the next couple of days the other angelfish looked a little chubby. Maybe it's just a piggy fish (it DOES like to pick at algae wafers even, but I am curious all the same. do angelfish get eggy? I know papilla emerge when they are ready to spawn, but I'm not totally sure what I'm seeing is papilla.
as far as mating behaviors go, the one i think is fat or eggy is always a bit aggressive, and the other is shy. I honestly have no idea what their genders are, I'm not even sure the people I got them from know!
Thanks for reading :)
