I'm a beginner at breeding angelfish. I have a pair that laid the eggs yesterday for the second time. Is it better to leave the eggs with the parents or remove them. First time they ate the eggs. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Some parents never get good at raising their eggs and you would in this case have to remove the eggs.

It is however quite common among all fish to fail their first spawning so I would give them another chance to care for the eggs themselves. If they fail this time to I woud consider removing them the next time the spawn

Usally but not always.

Angelfish are among the fish where its quite common that they never learn to care for the fry correctly. F0 fish seldom suffer from this problem.

Yes. they do. Angelfish are well known for having a taste for neons.

at MAS tonight we had an angel fish breeder talk to us, its a matter of giving the fish enough space and keeping them from being stressed, if they are relaxed enough they will do fine being parents, they will ussually pick off the weaker fry and do your kulling for you, he suggested a 30tall or a 55 for raising them, and if you are successful you should end up with around 50 (out of 300) baby angels.

important things to remember, the softer the water the easier it is for them to breed, they lay eggs on flat steep surfaces, and keep the ph as stable as possible.
