my angels that recently spawned in the 55lt breeder

looks to me like they ate their eggs
the tank is filthy and needs to be cleaned badly, but

they are still very agressive and protective, i cant see anything on the pipe,
i was wondering if there might have been fry in there,
how would i know?

i need some advice,

i am worried about the water conditions in there the tank is stinky

Am I no expert but I am currently trying to breed my angels too you can do a water change just be careful and try and keep the pipe or hose away from where the angels have been just in case.

It is not unusual for angels to at their first (first few) batch of eggs.

how long has it been since they spawned. if it 3 days or moe itpossible hat eggs have hatched and that the parents have larvea somewhere.

Cleaning the aquarium is usally ok when you have spawning fish as long as you take it carefully and make sure not t suck any eggs, fry, larvea from the tank.

I would worry more about the conditions of the tank. If those fry did hatch (and highly lightly they won't) they couldn't live in that condition anyway.

I agree with Hobbs, first priority do some tank maintainence, My angels have spawned twice and both times eaten the eggs, aparently this is common in the beginning.

yep it is totally common my angels have been laying eggs every week or so for the last 3 months and they have eaten them every time. Just this last spawn I got the parents to hatch them and now I've got fry swimming all over the place. I do a water change very carefully try not to disturb them as much as possible, and if there are fry be even more wary.

If you are worried about the hose use a small container and gently remove the water that way, its slower but safer.
