Need help New fish tank Angel Fish laying egg
My fish tank has been set it up about 2 month with fluval 405.
I got 6 angel fish from some one give it away. Now the Angel fish laying egg on the fluval 405 intake tube, the egg about 2 day it turn in to white color.
Please hepl what should I do.
I worry about the baby fish will suck in to fluval intake
What size is this tank?
have you completed the cycle?
if the tank is not cycled, I would not have high hopes of the survival of fry w/ the fluctuating water parameters
Recycle and water test ok.
I do some research on google
some one move the egg and parent to 10gallon tank.
Could you please write in proper sentences? It is difficult to understand you.
What size is your tank? What do you mean by "recycle"?
120g New World Cichlids ♦ 65g South-East Asian Planted Community ♦ 30g in-the-works ♦ 15g Tanganyikan Shell-Dwellers
I agree, i'm not fully able to understand what you are saying right now.
do you only have the 6 angels in the tank? what are the other tank mates
are you wanting to breed the angels?
what are the size of your angels?
while you are at it...
post your water parameters.
what test kit are you using.
we need a good amount of information to be able to assess your situation appropriately.
First off, don't worry about where the eggs are located now; second, if they turn white, very likely the pair are either two females or a male/female where the male did not do his job (happens alot with first/second and even third timers.) Only time will tell which case you have. In two or three days the pair will eat the eggs if they don't develop.
In the future, add a piece of slate or flat wood and they'll most likely use that for eggs.
If english is not your first language, don't worry too much about structure - we'll get your point.
Knowledge is fun(damental)

Congratulations on your Angelfish laying eggs! That means some of them are very happy!
Since the eggs have turned white and the parents have started eating the eggs, it is likely they were unfertilized or have perished. This is common when eggs are laid in a community aquarium where the parents feel the eggs may be threatened.
But if you know the two fish involved (mom and dad) then you can separate those two into a separate aquarium, provide a breeding stone/slab of slate, and see if they will try again. That is IF you want to breed angelfish!
You should be prepared to raise the young (do some research first) before you decide to start breeding fish as it can be challenging and time consuming (but it can also be rewarding if you enjoy it).
