Hi everyone. I'm Tiffany. New to the aquarium world and learning as I go. A little bit about myself is that when I was around 18 years old I made friends with a couple who had a 55 gallon aquarium filled with beautiful angelfish. Ever since that time I have always wanted the same thing. While our friendship grew I watched their hobby grow as well. They began breeding Angels and purchased another saltwater aquarium. Before I knew it they had several tanks and they were amazing! I enjoyed caring for their fish while they were on vacation. Many years later I finally rekindled that dream and made it come true, with a little help from craigslist. I started with some feeder goldfish and a few guppies. The guppies began having babies and more babies. I purchased a 30 gal tank and the 10 gal became the fry tank. But I still wanted to have angelfish so back on craigslist. I found 2 55 gal tanks for sale for $150. While discussing the tanks with the seller I mentioned to him that I will be making one of them an angelfish tank and he sold his 6 to me. Dream accomplished! I just got them settled into their new digs when I turned on the light and poof, they laid eggs on the terra cotta pot I had placed in the tank for cheap decoration. Now I'm trying to figure out how in the world I'm going to bring the offspring to adulthood. My local pet store is very interested in purchasing locally so I'm very excited. Thanks in advance to the members of this site for all of your wisdom and experience.

Welcome to the AC....
You're getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster.

^_^ Welcome to the community. Sounds like you're well on your way to a severe case of "multiple tank syndrome" XD
The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of the act

Great news Tiffany. Now you'll have to make sure to keep the parents away from the young. A tank divider or another tank will do as Cyberra hinted at. Adult cichlids often eat their young at the slightest distress.
Good luck and keep us informed.Warning; Bulldog Pleco guarding my Sons tank now..
Please remember; every keystroke has a consequence.
