Thread: Lady's Angels

  1. Default Lady's Angels

    Alright so, they've done it again. Seems as though this will be happening frequently so I thought I'd start a journal of it. I wish there was a way to move my original thread into the journal area as I don't feel like linking all the images and such.

    Two gold angels in a community tank with 4 female dwarf gourami, one severely runty male grouami (not sure of his type as he looks like the females but with sharper fins and bizarre coloring), couple mountain cloud minnows (who also breed like rabbits) and snails! Had the angels for 8 or 9 months...making them a year or less old.

    Tank is planted with low tech plants and gravel substrate. I suspect a sand bottom will be better for the fry but, I'm not ripping up the plants again.

    Tank is fed blood worms and Cobalt Spirulina flakes on alternating days. They also get any ants, spiders or flies that I can get in there for them. One or two day fast on maintenance day.

    First batch laid August 22. Roughly 100 eggs. On the filter intake tube, near the top. Half made it to wriggler stage and about 20 made it to free swimming. And became snacks. lol

    Second batch laid September 8. Roughly 200 eggs. At this point, they both still have their tubes out so maybe more will be laid. On an Amazon Sword Leaf near the bottom.

    Our friendly Mod can help with that. Just PM Slaphppy7

    It was sure nice of your fish to lay their eggs in a better spot for you, this time. haha. Congrats!

    Strange...the eggs are gone. I thought perhaps they were moved somewhere but, nope. Not a trace and neither of the angels are really guarding that area like they have been. Strike two! lol

    Perhaps they will lay a third round, and that will be the charm.

    Another set laid 4 or 5 days ago. After 3 days, they were moved onto another leaf. Lots of loss to fungus this time 'round. I also suspect the snail is eating them too. They are at the wiggler stage but this time, they have eyes. The first set never had eyes that are as visible (and creepy black) as these. The parent fish are not nearly as aggressive either. Pictures are tough as they're pretty well hidden.
