how do you know when you have an angelfish pair. I got 6 right now... figuring I'd get at least one pair outta the group... but they all sorta just pick on eachother, I dont know how to tell once I have a pair

Mine never paired it was just one killing after another until I only had one left.

My avvy is the last man standing,so to speak.He survived only because I removed the wild type silver ,that one was the killer,extremely large and beautiful but just an absolute demon.

You'll see two that will start sticking together and swimming together. Generally whenever the female moves, he is right beside her and no one else had better come around them.

to really tell if your angels have paired off, you may have to spend a bit of extra time paying keen attention to the angels in the tank. the two angels cleaning an area in the tank (plant leaf, filter, side of the tank etc) are getting ready to spawn and 9.9 out of 10 chance thats your couple. let me know if this works for you:19:

yeah i think after the big move tomorrow, I'll spend some good fun observation time with my angels. I really am hoping for a pair and I think with 6 of them in there, I'm bound to find (hopefully) at least two that dont hate eachother :)
