Im excited

My new tank is possibly showing signs of stabilising. After worrying about survival of the pair of angels that came with it, they are now heavily defending the corner with the filter tube, cleaning it from top to bottom in prep for eggs. I called previous owners who said every 2 weeks or so they laid eggs, usually on the filter. They just let them die but il be saving them. Fingers crossed!!!

My bro has a community tank and his angels lay eggs, the angels get tired from stress and lay down on the security of the eggs and the other fish get them, maybe consider getting a 30g or 20 for the pair to lay

In my tank, after 5-6 days and the eggs were really moving, I put a tank divider in my 55 and isolated the babies. When they took off swimming I captured all I could in a breeder box (small mesh box) and fed them bbs until they were big enough to identify as fish (as opposed to squirmy dots) I turned them loose and found out the tank divider wasn't quite a tight seal against the glass and of course all the babies found that tiny gap and became dinner for the other fish waiting on the other side, soooo.... dont do that! lol.
