Spawning Slate for Angelfish???????
 
Hello,

Recently I took in a pair of breeding angelfish. I am currently prepping an aquarium for them as they are territorial in my larger community aquarium. I guess my question is can I just use a peice of slate that I have around my house as their spawning slate. I purchased a home this past summer and with the house came a lot of slate. I am not sure what it was used for, if ever. Additionally, if I can use the slate I already have what measures can I take to make sure the slate is safe to use in the aquarium?

Thanks so very much in advance.

:-D

I would get something from a pet store other then something laying around the house since they have it treated so your fish cannot get any paricites or get ill from it, I just wouldn't risk the health of my fish im sorta paranoid when it comes to stuff like that.. Good luck with your fish would love to see some pictures and when they spawn some more information about when they spawn what they look like and such I'm in the middeling of having my first pair of angels that paired off and now just waiting for them to spawn also :).
