I don't have a couple of large sponge filters to keep water circulating so I'm forced to keep the canister going. I'm not worried about the bacteria in the filter, more keeping an even temp throughout the tank during the winter.
AWWWW!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!! That is so exciting! I hope they continue to be good parents, and that they don't consider eating their babies to be 'good.' Never had angels, but from what I've read. . . don't they like to move their babies shortly after they hatch? Hopefully they will. Don't know why it is, but they do seem to be fond of laying their eggs on those filters. . . *shakes head*
Still! SUPER exciting!!! I hope they do great and grow, grow, grow!!! Will you keep some of them if they make it!?
