  1. Default Angelfish Spawned.

    Hi I'm new to this. I've bred several species of fish before, but not Angels. Two weeks ago I bought 2 black lace angels. One I thought was a male, the other I didn't know. I put them in a planted 29 gallon by themselves with the plans of conditioning them and moving to a spawning tank. Well a couple days ago I noticed they got their tubes, one round the other pointed like the tip of a pencil. The one with the round tube, I'm assuming is the female, got quite plump when seen head on. This morning I noticed her cleaning a java fern leaf, a few hours later when I went back in the room to feed the fish, there was eggs on the leaf. So I know I have a female, lol! I still think the other is a male. I have no idea if the eggs were even fertilized or if it was successful. I figure in 24 hours or so I'll know if they all go white. Or they may just get eaten. My only concern is that this tank has an HOB filter and I know that if I get any fry they will get sucked up. Would putting a sponge over the intake work? Or should I just let this spawn go. My plan was to set up spawning tank with slate and remove eggs to hatch artificially. So no clue what to do with this spawn, any suggestions! Thank you.

    First spawn will almost certainly be eaten, some pairs never do successfully raise fry. No worries if you miss this chance, they'll most likely keep spawning at least several more rounds before taking a break. I use Hydrosponge Pro replacement sponges on all my hob and canister filter intakes to keep shrimp, fry, plants and mts out of the impellers.

    ^^^^Please click the eggs/dragons, thanks.

    Well a third of the eggs hatched almost a week ago. The parents have been moving them around from two different spots, lol. They are now becoming free swimmers and ate some BBS this morning. It's funny watching the parents trying to keep them on a leaf and the fry just keep swimming away. Poor parents are going to be run ragged spitting those things back on the leaf, lol.

    I can try to get some pics or a short vid on my iPad or camera to post. Whatever one comes out looking better I guess, lol. I do have another question. At what size or age should I remove the fry from the tank?

    You will want to wait a couple weeks to move them, if they make it that long. Any sooner and you may damage them.
    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.
