I'm presuming they are eggs; certainly they are neither rice grains nor are they air bubbles.

I have a 72 gal. bowfront going through a mini-cycle (yea ), so I don't know why eggs would be a-layin' because no one is very happy right now.

I have an African Butterfly Fish, a Ghost Knife Fish, two Angel Fish, one Three Spot Gourami, one Mystery Snail, one Twig Catfish, and two Rainbow Sharks. There may be a couple small hitch-hiker snails in my tank, saday.

How should I get rid of these, these things?! What are they, and who laid them? I'd like for it to NEVER happen again.

Thanks!

Edit II: Holy Baby Jesus are those Angelfish Eggs?!

Edit: I really don't want a loach, but should I go and get one, moving my snail into... well, Mystery snail would have to be a thing of the past. I just dealt with a snail outbreak in my sump, and I'm dealing with one in my 29 gallon, but none of those snails laid eggs. Another hoard of snails is not not not kosher.

Should be pretty obvious that they are angel eggs. The parents should be guarding and fanning them

It is the angel fish, they make horrible parents so if you could try to rear the fry artificially

kitten_penang: I put my edits in the wrong order. I'd want to get rid of snail eggs, but I'll keep fish eggs. If nothing else, it's a good, free meal.


I bought my angelfish a couple months apart, and obviously from different batches, so I picked them out for their coloring. When I initially purchased them, I was a complete n00b, not just the bumbling id10t I am now, so compatibility was not something I was keen to consider. "Cool" was the name of the game. That being said, my fish have been a little brutal to one another since I got them (less so now they they're in the 72).

Because of the mini-ammonia spike, the snails in other tank and my sump, the lack of food (not fed since Tuesday afternoon), the bickering, and the 25% chance of selecting a male and a female, not to mention the odds of them pairing off, meant that I didn't consider the eggs on my tank to be from two angels I figured to be males.

No complaints, just surprise. And Actual fear that I'd have this terrible snail epidemic in a larger tank. That's not a good thing; the thought of scraping off eggs from my tank's walls repulsed me, too.
