Exclamation Need help quick pleaseeee

Sorry for seeming so urgent but I really need help immediately kind of >_< My angelfish laid eggs again and I kind of want to try to artificially raise the eggs. Can anyone give me any tips?

I've read up a bit on it. But I got two questions as of now:

Is it ok if I take the eggs and move them into a breeder box for about an hour before I can get to the store to buy a heater to put in the 5g tank I intend to put them in?

Secondly, Where can I get methyln Blue or w/e... any good funguscide recommendations are they neccessary?


edit: btw, i need to do it quick so they don't eat them that's why im in a hurry... might put them int he breeder box for an hour or two while i get supplies.....

Does this set up sound ok :

5 g tank with airpump by eggs. Was wondering if I can set the piece of the filter tube with the eggs on it in java moss so some of the eggs do not get smashed in case they are on the other side... But ya, I'll keep it darkish for a few days until they hatch. Would this set up be ok?

As far I know and I have heard and watched; Angel fish parents take care of their fries. So as far as the eggs is with the parents; there is no such dangers. Leave the eggs to their parents. Remove the other fishes.

I suggest you to have a look at this. It is very very useful

Here in this video; you will find all the information relating to breeding the Angel fish.

Rex, Last time they ate the eggs within a few hours after laying them. This is only their second batch though and who knows if they laid them and ate them before cus they do it fast lol.


Willow, The eggs were laid on that piece of the filter intake tube. I took it out and put it in a tank filled with tank water.





Anyone know if Hikari first bites would be a good food? I could hatch baby brine shrimp as well.

It's been about maybe 28ish hours since they laid them....... does anyone know if this is normal? VVVVV

I normally see some white eggs but not this many.

Is this normal? what should i do?

I have no experience in this but I would pull the air stone away from the eggs, oxygen content in the water is good but so much so close could be detrimental to their development. But then again I know nothing about this subject, just seems like a reasonable thing to me.

BTW congrats and good luck

Thanks zof and britny!

Zof, I read online to put an airstone by the eggs to keep water flow good but im not sure it might be bad...

Just looked... all the eggs turned white. :( I wonder why!!! :/ I was really looking forward to trying to raise some baby angels. I'm not sure what went wrong. I'm going to have to try next time I guess. Next time I'll leave them with parents and see. I don't think I have two females because their pointy things on there belly (don;t remember the name) look different. One is very thick and one is thin.
