Help please with Angelfish eggs

Hi All. Just a quick question. My Angelfish laid eggs yesterday which is a first for them and me. I have done some research to try and inform myself about what's going to happen. Now after 36 hours most of the eggs have gone White ( unfertilised I think) and my research tells me these are going to go yucky soon so what do I do. Do I leave them there or remove them? The Angelfish are doing there best, they are being protective and very attentive to the eggs it's a shame they are not viable although there are a few that still look translucent. Any advice great fully received.

Hey, when my Angels spawned I was told all unfertilized eggs will be eaten by the parents, so you likely won't have to worry, here is a link to my post regarding your question:

Good Luck :)

wait until they are suppose to hatch and once the viable ones have been removed from the surface pull the non viable ones out and clean it off if the parents don't get to it first, its probably not a big deal they eat them but no reason to risk it.

You can probably expect more eggs in about a month. With many cichlids including angels it may take them a few times to finally get it right, especially if you are letting the parents raise the eggs and fry.

The male just needs to learn how to fertilize better lol I have a male that will fertilize an area that no eggs are at! I watch him and go "DUDE COME ON!" haha


Also, if you feed them well (more than the usual) you can get another spawn way faster than a month. But with all the extra feeding you will have to increase the water changes for that time, cause more food = more waste = poor water quality.

Well, 19 days later and we have more Angelfish eggs (yay), must be nearly 300 there and again they're really attentive to them so keep your fingers crossed.
