Have your angels bred? I NEED HELP im so confused
Hey all ! So I made a post a few weeks back about my angels that I thought paird off they took a side of the tank and they would scare everyone away so I put them in there own 30 gallon tank then after awhile of nothing happenening in the 30 gallong I thought I was wrong so I put them back in my 75 gallon tank with my other fish and right away my black angel went nutts chasing my white (possible male angel away) hes always picking on him chasing the white angel away stressing him out badly the black angels papilia is out and the stomic has been bloated a week now he/she spends its time with the angel with orange on its head all the time they nip at the larger marble angel to get him away but sometimes they let him/her around I'm very confused on whats going on i thought i had a pair but now i have NO IDEA whats going on all i know is i see the black angels palpia out and it looks like my white angels a lil wider is it possible i have 2 females the white and the black? they have plenty of plants and places to lay there eggs .. should i move them into the empty 30 gallon tank ? are they even a pair?

some answers would be great thanks guys!:oops:

How many angels do you have in this tank?

Plumkin 02-20-2011 03:43 PM

i have 5 angels 4 are larger then the 5th one the 5th one never grew with my other angels :/ he stayed the same size but no one ever pics on him hes always hiding T_T

With five angels I'd think the agression would be not so focused on just one idividual. I only have experience with spawning discus, not angelfish. A pair of discus can spawn in a community tank no problem. Until I actually saw a pair spawning together there was no way I could tell who was male/female. I would think that would hold true for angels?? I really don't know so I should just keep my mouth shut until someone who comes along who knows what's happening in your tank.

no thats right you cannot tell whos the male or female for sure untill you see whos laying the eggs I think they are similar to discus there behavior maybe not i have no idea i just took a video and will upload it on youtube then link it in here so it will help to SEE whats really going on lol
