Angelfish Eggs

When I got home today, I discovered 2 of my FW angelfish decided twas time to lay a few hundred eggs. Wheee! Tis my first mated pair, so like a proud momma I took all sorts of pics. Kinda weird now that I think about it LOL taking pix of fish sex but ah well, they didn't seem to mind ;)

So while I did post a few in the FW forums, wanted to share with everyone. In one of the pics, you can even see her breeding tube!

How do you know when Angels are mating?
I caught my 2 in a lockjaw position(looks like they were kissing)
I haven't discovered eggs yet.
Was this courtship of fighting??

Could be pondmom; angels usually get aggressive around mating time (they may be considered peaceful, but they are certainly cichlids!). My crew had already started chasing each other around the tank when I added what turned out to be a very fertile female to the mix; a week and a half later I came home to fish sex *grin*

Some of the other signs you'll notice are 2 fish chasing the others away from a section of the tank, and watch for fish "cleaning" an egg laying site (nipping and picking at it). Once they pair off, and the site is cleaned to their satisfaction, you'll see them doing exactly what my 2 were doing. One (the female) will move up the chosen egg laying surface depositing eggs, followed by the male who will move the same way depositing milt over the freshly laid eggs. Its really awesome to watch

Heh no babies yet. So far they've been eating the eggs (or someone has; tis a community tank with 4 other angels, 6 loaches and a plec LOL). I expected it; eggs aren't around long in a tank like mine!

I figure after Xmas (we'll be away for a week) I'll pull the eggs and see if I can raise me a buncha lil angelfish babies

Where are you located? If you'd consider it, I'd like to find a companion for my Angel.

Over in Westchester NY Billy.

If I'm successful, I'll certainly send a couple your way We worked out the possible genetics (as best we can considering we don't know the parentage of the 2 breeders), and we'll likely have some smokys, some silvers and all should be veiltails Either way I think they'd be lovely companions to your pretty baby (btw, thats not a silver; any idea what it is? A clown mebbe? Unusual markings).
