My angel fry are growing to almost dime size

So now after a few weeks my angel fry are beginning to have the "triangular" shape of an angel. Some of them even have very long fins like the dad.

I started off with over 100 eggs (yes I counted LOL), and when they first hatched and swimming free I think I had about 70-80 fry. At this point I have 35 fry.

Here they are:

Mom is in the background:

Feeding on the leaves:

Mom and dad both there:

A few of them exploring in a corner:

Dad comes to check them out, a whole school followed dad as well:

It seems they will have dad's long fins.

As I observed them, there are already some bullies among them.

yep, I cute little buggers. I remember when mine were that small. hah. Looks like your male has a veil tail and the female has a standard. Your brood should be half veil like the dad and half standard like the mom. The neat thing is, if you breed 2 veiled angels together, you can get a superveil with finnage like this.


Only about 1/4 of them would be superveils though.

How nice to see them in a planted tank. They are adorable, and look very fit. Love their little fins sticking out.

Thanks for posting the pics-really great.

Remember that Darwin was mostly right!
