Angelfish breeding questions

My angelfish look like they are about to breed because they keep pecking the top of the heater and the heater cord and the plant thatís next to the heater and are very defensive of that area. They are paired off and I had a few questions about how to breed them. Iím planning on removing the eggs once they are fertilized if I am lucky.

What should I do/buy to set up a tank for angelfish babies?

How do I take care of angelfish fry?

How often to angelfish lay eggs?

What can I do to promote breeding?

How do I know they are fertilized?

They nip at each otherís back fins and their chest, is this normal mating behavior?

I have three angelfish do I have to remove the third one if it looks like itís doing okay and isnít to stressed because it would be inconvenient to move the third one?

What should I do/buy to set up a tank for angelfish babies?
Get a 2-1/2 gallon and a ten gallon tank, bare bottom with cycled sponge filters.

How do I take care of angelfish fry?
They will hatch on day 3 and go free swimming on day 8 or 9. Feed them newly hatched baby brine shrimp.

How often to angelfish lay eggs?
Usually they lay every 7 to 14 days.

What can I do to promote breeding?
Put them in their own tank and feed them good.

How do I know they are fertilized?
Unfertilized eggs turn w3hite. Fertilized eggs stay amber colored.

They nip at each otherís back fins and their chest, is this normal mating behavior?
Yes.

Remove the third Angel now. Get a breeding slate and put it in the tank. Remove anything you don't want them to spawn on if you plan to pull the eggs, like broad leafed plants. First spawn will probably fail, don't worry about it. If you leave the eggs, they will hatch on day 3 and the parents will probably move them somewhere. After 5 or 6 more days they will go free swimming and need to be fed baby brine shrimp. If you want to move the babies into their own tank, siphon them into a clean small tank, 2-1/2 or 5 gallon work good. If you pull the eggs, put them in the 2-1/2 with a small sponge or open air lines. They will fall off whatever they were laid on and wiggle on the bottom until they go free swimming.
