So since I moved the Peruvian angel fish pair into there breeding tank there hasent been much activity for the last 5 days in a row I have changed roughly half the tank water every day and last nite the females egg spot was protruding quite a lot and the pair was cleaning the breeding cone.



So today checked the tank and to my delight they have laid eggs on the breeding cone a nice size spawn.

They have laid eggs before in my planted tank but only ever lasted 2 days.

So seen as they are in there tank on there own I am excited to see what happens.


There is a bit of aggression from the male towards the female now if it continue s should I remove one of them.


First time hopefully attempting to raise the potential young so any help on the matter is more then welcome.


Regards
Craig

Hi Craig,the female looks a bit isolated alright but if the aggression is not too much towards her then i'd leave them be (marks on her side though and i'd be whipping her out).........just leave them were they are if the eggs disappear again though ok as they will get it right eventually (hopefully).....I also see a few eggs that were not fertilised appearing..........if this turns into a lot more than a few then he'll also get this right eventually (hopefully ha) aswell..........Angels always confused me when breeding......they never do things that make sense and each pair did things differently from the pair before!!
I do love them so :)

All the best dude

Yeah Ger they had laid eggs a few times in the planted tank so moved them into the breeding tank.

Eggs were gone this morning a bit relived going to the states in a few days and was worrried about not being able to monitor the fry.

So did a small water change today and when I get back I'll feed heavey on frozen food again and do big water changes daily to induce the spawning again.

Nice one Craig. I'm sure you'll get young from them in time.
The weather around Tuesday was ideal for spawning attempts. There was low pressure with thunder about. Had a couple of spawns here myself.

Does the weather really play apart tho Eric I always thought it came into effect with wild fish and in particular marine fish.

How is it he fish house must try get down to you some time soon.

Have some angelfish fry that I thought I lost due to the eggs getting fungus.


Had the light off since I got back from holiday something caught my eye turned the light on and I was quite surprised to see a lot of fry in the breeding tank I had taken the parents out and back into the planted community tank.


I think roughly they are between 5 or 6 days old I'm hopeing the ones on the bottom of the tank are still at the wriggler stage and aren't belly sliders
