    Default Breeding Angels, help...


    1 Not allowed!
    I've decided to make my hobby for fun and profit rather than just fun.
    I've decided after speaking to the purchaser for the local Big Al's chain to go with Dwarf Angels.
    I was thinking Discus or peppermint plecos but was advised that demand was up & down on them and a sure bet would be Dwarf or Marbled Angels as well as gold nugget plecos. I decided on Dwarves.
    As I don't need to make a lot of money I'm going to try and keep it simple and a small operation.
    I believe I will start with a few 90G tanks, Eheim canisters with inline heaters and low end (Aqueon modular) LED lighting if plants are not required.
    I'm already setup for water prep having added two more 55G plastic drums with power heads and heaters so I can get the parameters to the pH that is conducive to achieving fry.
    Of course I will be researching this over the next few months but any advice on what should be in tank, like, driftwood? caves? whatever, would help in your knowledgable estimation would be appreciated. I use the word knowledgable as I hope those that already do breed them successfully can give me some insights. 😀 many thanks in advance.

    BTW, those that know me may be wondering why not Morays, sadly, the market just isn't there.

    When you say dwarf angels, what type of angel fish are your referring to, veil angels (Pterophyllum scalare) ?
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Pterophyllum is what I'm interested in. Like this little bugger:

    P. Altum and P. Leopoldi in particular. Should have mentioned that at the get go. 😕

    sounds like a great project. I am no help, however, as I've never intentionally set up a breeding environment.

    How large do these angels get? very pretty.

    15 g FW planted: crown tail betta, neons, snails
    90 g FW semi planted: EBJD, congos, apple snails

    About the size of a 1/2 dollar (Kennedy coin) and my understanding is they're the right size for anyone with a tank 20G and up. Going to setup 2 x 90's with Leo type in one and Alt in the other. I don't foresee any issues in doing this and my way of thinking of it is what's 2 more tanks maintenance wise 😳

    sounds like fun.
    Now are you talking 2 inches body or with fins?

    My single angel is full grown and a little smaller (body) than one of those kiwi shoe polish tins. Maybe 2 1/2 inches body only but around 6 from nose to end of tail and fin tip to fin tip. Pearl doesn't have the veil fins so she's not as large over all as those angels with the fancy fins.

    Body size. I was thinking of doing the Marbled Angels, much larger and popular too, but I personally like the little ones....
