I have read numerous forums and bulletin boards on this topic:
What colour are fertilized, healthy angelfish eggs, 1 day after they have been laid and fertilized by the male angelfish?

Some ppl say clear, some people say white...Fish experts confirm!

brown fertilised and white are not fertilised you can tell a few hrs after they have spawned, most time often then not they are fertilised,

i have found them to start to turn yellow by now if they have been firtilised ive just had a clutch hatch today soon there after you should notice formation inside the eggs and by this stage the eggs should be distinctively yellow

Thanks guys!!

yellow/clear= fertilized
white= unfertilized

Now, the dilemma is, why didn't my healthy large marble male fertilize his partner's eggs???:help:
