Angelfish eggs...are they fertile?

I noticed two of my angelfish layed eggs on my heater two days ago so I've separated the eggs from the rest of the tank (a 29 gallon) with a divider. Another pair has layed eggs before but they all turned infertile (white) within a day and a half.

With the eggs I have now, over a period of two days about half are still clear. Usually all of the eggs would've been infertile by now, so I'm thinking...are they fertile this time?

What color are they? Mine stay a kind of beige. If they haven't fungesed yet there is a good chance they will hatch. Mine hatch in about 3 days.

I removed your other thread about this from General Freshwater.

They just seem clear. Should I remove the infertile eggs from the 'fertile' eggs?

If you can without disturbing the other eggs.

Good news! I got home today and took a good close look at the eggs and I think I see wigglers! About half a dozen have started this stage. I'm soooo excited! ^_^
