    Did she ever watch Spongebob Squarepants? They had an episode where they were celebrating the Krusty Krab’s eleventy-seventh anniversary :) Maybe that’s where she heard it.

    I snagged a nice used 29gal with filter and 200w Aqueon heater for $25 yesterday. The current batch of swimmers that hatched last week have been moved over to that tank. Petco’s sale doesn’t start until the 30th per my convo with them on Facebook.

    I now have the tank set up and filled with a 1:3 ratio is tap to RODI water, my salvinia floaters, sponge filter, and my old Sat+ led that I had on my old 29gal a couple years ago.
    Why are you choosing to go with RODI water mix. Wouldn't they have to be re-acclimated to straight tap if you decide to sell them, either to LFS or club members or whomever?

    Hi Sue. I chose to go with a RODI mix because I had read that angelfish fry do best in soft acidic water. Our tap has a pH of 8.2 and isn't the cleanest water source in the world, so I wanted to give the fragile fry a comfortable water to hatch and grow in for now. I have not lost a single baby from what I can tell (other than the one I accidentally sucked out during a water change), so I am hesitant to change anything just yet. Once they get older, bigger, and more robust I will gradually increase the tap. At least that's the plan.

    It was a very brutal Saturday night. Once the lights in the tank dimmed to twilight levels and the main lights in the house were turned off, the ghost came out to see what the angels had been up to. I watched in both fascination and horror as everything played out within the tank. The ghost was big enough to completely ignore the assault from the two angels as it scraped off the eggs. When it would take a break from eating them, it would turn to face the angels and all three would just start beating the crap out of each other. The angels would eventually back off and the ghost would go right back to eating the eggs. Then the angels would muster up some more courage and the three of them would duke it out again.

    I don't care to have that happen again. I'm going to hope that the angels continue to spawn on the intake tube so that I can just pull it out when they're done and clean the eggs off.

    That had to have so stressful for you! And not a lot of fun for the fish either.

    I wouldn't want to see that kind of fighting either. It would be stressful to watch and I'm sure pretty stressful for the angels. There's something to learn all the time with our tanks which is great when we can share this information with others. Without a ghost knife, maybe the angels would have been able to defend the eggs better - and maybe not. My angels ate their own eggs/fry when I didn't remove them and the only other inhabitants were cories and rummy nose tetras.

    I've managed to avoid aggression for the most part in all of my tanks by only stocking species that get along with one another. This tank has gone a couple years without any fighting and this spawning thing just came out of nowhere.

    Sooooo...

    After watching @mac video of his minnows spawning I got to thinking... Why must angelfish fry be kept in a bare tank? Wouldn't a properly set up heavily planted tank with lots and lots of moss and fast-growing plants provide an ammonia- and nitrate-free environment that is more natural as well as providing a bunch of hiding places and naturally occurring food sources? I'm just wondering why this wouldn't be an ideal setup. I mean, when I was breeding crystal shrimp, they and the otos absolutely thrived in the tank and there was never any worry about nitrogen compounds or other toxins. That water was incredibly clean and I was getting a high yield of shrimplets and no noticeable premature deaths.

    As I sit in front of my fry tank, I just feel like the bazillion water changes could be avoided or at least reduced in a properly designed planted tank. Now when I say planted tank, I'm not talking about gravel with three or four struggling plants from Petsmart. I'm referring to something similar to the one in my signature pic. Or even something simple like putting a clump of hydrocotyle tripartita - which is a very aggressive grower - into the tank and letting it just go wild.

    Well I've found it difficult to keep a heavily planted tank clean with all the feedings angelfry require. Plus the bacteria that can accumulate in substrate can harm them. I've found bare-bottom works better to remove the debris off the bottom which I've always had to do at least daily with a WC. I remove debris with a baster in between WCs after feeding. That said, I have giant duckweed in my fry tank to soak up nitrates or any plant that is not planted, like anacharis and guppy grass.
