If you really want to try raising angels I would suggest during up a tank for the pair. A 20 gallon high would work, a 29 gallon would probably work better if trying to let parent raise. It all depends on what you would like to do.
Well, it was just a fluke - I had no idea they were a pair that would pair (if that makes any sense). I'm not really in a position to setup another tank. I have a good 29h, but would need heater, hood, stand and a place to set it up!
I'll just play it by ear and see where it takes us. There are other fish, but the angels have been fiercely protective so far...but as I've learned, it sometimes takes angels several spawns before even they won't eat their young. If they make it to swimmers, maybe I can rescue a few???
