View Full Version : Female angelfish layed eggs yesterday and has been fanning them!

I was really stoked to see it the only sad thing is I don't have a male so they aren't fertile. Should I leave them in there? she seems to spend all her time guarding and fanning them. Kind of makes me sad she laid a ton of lil eggs on my filter tube maybe 40+. This is the 3rd fish to breed/lay eggs in this tank and so far the 6th since I've been keeping fish.

I kind of want to get a male and get rid of my tetras but I'm not setup for taking care of baby fish I can only have this one tank :/

I would pull them out personally. She might actually eat them once they start turning white. It wont really hurt anything but she'll be really defensive while they are there. Could cause some territory/aggression issues with the other fish.

She knows that once they don't work out, it's time to eat them. It's up to you whether to pull them or not, but I agree with Jaster. She'll raise hell. lol
