Infertile Angelfish Eggs
Finally figured the gender of my angel. A girl! She's got a large batch of eggs all up one of my cryptocorynes, but they've gone fuzzy white. Should I scrape the eggs off, or leave them there? Will they damage the plant?
I'm really hoping I can just leave them there. Put my hand in to lay down some PVC pipe caves earlier, near the eggs, and she kept swimming up to my arm, looking as if she was going to attack.

She's defending her eggs which is good. It indicates mothering instincts.
The fish will probably clean up the eggs, but if not, she'll lose interest. Then you can pull the leaf or scrape it.

Becayse many angels are so far down the line from wild type parents they lose natural instincts and many eat the eggs. Good to see ures haven't, shame they are infertileMy therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .
