    Tx Matt! Upside down spawning. Lol. They were eating the eggs that fell off, both parents. Maybe that have him the taste, idk. But I've seen him go at the eggs as soon as the light went off before.

    Thank you Boundava, I actually have two more pairs at the moment, one in the third 33g and one in the 90g. I will include them in my breeding project if the chance arises.

    The pair in the 33g are platinum/gold Marble, the pair in the 90g is gold marble (with a blue gene and pearscale gene) and gold marble pearlscale. They are all my fish (raised from egg) sauf the big male glutton platinum.

The turkey baster is much more precise I find, especially since I only took some of the wigglers and left the rest. Believe me, they are all bunched together at that stage and really tiny!
    Great info, for any others who may with to try this, too

    Basters are handy little tank tools!

    Sorry your male ate this round before you could get any out, but thanks for capturing the video of them. It was a graceful act, like a slow ballet dance. They are so very pretty

    Tx Rivers! Yes! I agree. It's very graceful, angelfish just are. I'm trying to capture as many short vids and pics as I can for this thread to share. And how-to info :)

    And if anyone had any more suggestions, pls don't hesitate to share them :)

    Well, I don't give up, but am incredibly frustrated and disappointed. The fry in the 5g nursery were doing great until Saturday. I had hardly any deaths. I counted at least 22 of them on Friday. I was doing daily water changes with the parents' tank water and slowly adding aged Primed water to the mix. I was very happy with the outcome. Saturday I had to leave the house in a hurry and didn't get back until 7pm. It was an emergency and I didn't have time to feed the babies. I can't see this being the issue, but I was down to 3 not so healthy looking babies on Sunday. I even changed the water Saturday, and fed them as soon as I got home despite the emergency. I feel like a real failure. I've never had issues like this before. I thought maybe the pH dropped because I was WCing with 100% tank water for the first week or so. I had just started adding a bit of aged/fresh water. But the kh/gh and pH were fine and as expected. I threw in an old IAL from one of the breeder tanks because I thought organisms liked to hide in these. Can't think of anything else.....
    No temp changes, no mishaps, regular WC's, covered sponge filter. I even checked the filter hoping to find 20 babies had squeezed through and we're in the filter, but no.

    So, things I'm gonna do to hopefully improve:

    Move all the red ramshorns out. I moved the adults out and the babies really grew fast. I wonder if the snails out-competed the fry for food? Idk if that's even possible. I just can't figure this out and tired of trying to figure out what the heck happened???

    I'm gonna get more food (even though I bought what was available) but I still haven't hatched my own BBS.

    Idk, I can't think of anything else to do differently. It just drives me crazy because they were all doing so well Friday and gone just like that. No bodies, no nothing in one day.

    Well, I'm going to try this again, I love all my angels, but if suddenly I can't raise the babies for some unknown reason, I'd rather someone who can to have the parent pairs.

    What was the ph of the nursery water?

    Growing populations of snails can lower ph dramatically, especially in a small tank

    Sorry for the losses, sounds like you have done everything right

    You'll figure it out Kat. Nothing is more fun than raising fry. Wish I knew more about angels so I could provide something more substantial than encouragement.

    Thanks everyone. I was embarrassed to even update this. I honestly never had problems like this in the 10+ years I was breeding angelfish on and off.

    Matt: It had a pH of 7.4, same as my breeder tank. With daily WCs, I wouldn't think the snails could suck out all the calcium, but who knows? They are tiny, but they grew fast and there are a lot! They were just little dots a week ago, I could hardly tell they were snails. I never had snails in my tanks before though, so I'll remove them all when some angels breed again and I don't miss the spawn.

    It does bother me that ramshorns don't do well in my other tanks, they etch so badly they don't reproduce unless the tank has lots of food. These ones are all perfectly beautiful. So it makes me think they are eating a lot of it.

    I have new fry! I stole a leaf from my 90g, two young gold marble pearlscales spawned and there's no way the eggs would have made it with the bushynose in there. I needed practice as well, so I tried hatching the eggs in my 5g nursery. Most of the eggs were not fertilized, but I got maybe 15 wigglers from that spawn. Then a day later, the same pair spawned as before, the gold marble/gold pair in one of my 33g breeders, so I sucked up about 25-40 wigglers and transferred them all to my 5g. After accidentally sucking up a bunch of wigglers whole doing a WC, I put all the wigglers in a dish to keep them together and make siphoning easier. I removed all the largest snails, let's see how these do...

    Oh and a pic of the one baby that made it from the last fiasco.
