I wanted to share with everyone, and to get some advise....
We just noticed that there are alot of EGGS on the downspout
of the filter.
So here is the question is there anything I should do?

This will be GREAT..... if they make it............

i wish you could provide me with a little more info on like what else is in the tank with them if there are any others. is this the first time for them to spawn? but right now all i can tell you is that. angels learn to be better parents the more they spawn. as they first start out their success rate for the first few times is most likely 0%. but the best things you can do to help them out by add lots of plants and rocks to provide the fry with hidding spots as they hatch. i also have a grow tank for my angel fry. and setting another up for the discus cuz their starting to show courtship signs. i do recommend you finding a cheap tank out of the paper or even checking you lfs to see if they have any used for sale. and in that case you want your water parameters the same as the tank that their parent s are in.

Thanks for your reply.....

This must be their first time.. but from what I see.. so far so GOOD....
they are defending their area and keeping the eggs aireated.
So I had a pleco in there and I googled angelfish breeding last night.
there is an article that said to remove the pleco... SO I DID.... and
the SNAIL.... I did that to.
SO the only delima that I have is to leave the eggs in or take them out.
in the past with the other fish that have had babies I have just let nature
take its course. But in this case I would like to save as many babies as possible.
I know there are many hiding places for the fry.. But I also have a baby hatchery
( NET ) style I read that the babies within 3 days will have tails wiggling
then with in 7 days they will become Free swimming fry.
so I am wondering.. should I take the inlet tube and put it in the net a day before?
I DONT KNOW..... I have also read that the eggs if the parents are not in the tank
should be treated with fungus preventer... I dont want to use any chemicals...
So I will probably just leave well enough alone.

OK everyone... its been 2 full days now.... and I can actually see that
some of the eggs are not fertilized.
take a look at the pic, from what I have read so far the ones that are WHITE
in color are the ones that are not fertilized.
I also read that in the third day... we should see tails forming..
I will keep a picture posted update.

OK Guys.. either there isnt enough people here that are seeing
this post or there isnt enough people here that know much
about ANGEL fish and breeding them.. ( lol )
we now have more eggs.... on the same filter tube...
look at the first pic I posted.....
then look at this pic.. just noticed them this evening..
or what?

Please any one with more info.. would be great.....


Teammuir1 01-14-2010 07:04 PM

I am really confussed,,,
there are no more eggs on the side.. they are all on the frt..
and I am not so sure that they are the same eggs?
do they move there eggs?
I have no idea on this and I have yet to read
anywere about this .... so if someone knows about there
habits please let me know......

They were probably eaten. It's pretty common for angelfish to eat their first couple spawns.
