Angelfish papilla

The breeding pair of angelfish I have. Female papilla very noticeable, and they are defending a corner which apparently I've been told they have laid there before. Anyone know how long it takes from papilla showing to laying

The papilla will often show even if there is no breeding imminent. Make sure they are well fed, and you can often induce a breeding with a water change, especially a large one.

Yes but the way they are behaving, cleaning a corner and defending it suggests something else??? Du think??

Should be really soon, when I notice mine cleaning something they are usually laying eggs in the upcoming few hours.

"Uncycled tanks don't kill fish, unprepared aquarists do."



So true, I've cycled with fish a few times without any loss of life. It takes patients, commitment, hard work, and more PWC than you can even imagine yourself ever doing.

Than you jetajockey
