YaY! It's only been 3 weeks and my Angelfish have now spawned for the second time. Wish me luck (they ate the first lot)

Thankyou

I've been watching them throughout the day. They are doing a much better job 2nd time round
She is constantly at them fanning and picking. And the male even drops in to help out every now and then.
A few questions though, provided the eggs are still there when I wake up and read any replies...

My female is still running over the eggs as if she is still occasionally dropping a few eggs off, and the male also appears to be fertilizing every now and then. Is this normal 6 hours after laying started?
She could also just be rubbing her belly on the eggs while fanning? If this is so, what is the purpose?
They have also had a few aggressive moments between each other. The female sometimes attacks the male, he retreats to the opposite end of the tank, waits a while, then heads back to their 'territory' and picks at the ground, and she takes a while to let him back at the eggs again. Then things go back to normal.
The male has been eating some bloodworm and flake food, but I am yet to see the female eat.. Is this normal? Hope she isn't saving room for caviar.
Well I'm off to bed and fingers crossed the eggs are still there in the morning!

Still no one able to help me here? I need a coach! Please! Lol
It's 8:30am and my eggs are still good. The parents are still guarding them
Here are some pics, will they eat those white eggs like they are supposed to or being their second time, could they possibly mess this one up too?
It's a 29g tank, so I added 4 drops of methyln blue to assist with controlling the fungus.
I hope I get wrigglers!

Checked the nitrite and ammonia levels today as its been 3 days since last water change. Ammonia is at .1 and nitrite at 1ppm. I've heard angel eggs are sensitive to water changes, so should I do a pwc or not? If not, when should I?

How long from when they paid the eggs to when they turned white? Did you remove the parents? Methyl blue helps with the fungus but you should also put a bubble stone so it blows over the eggs to help with fungus.

The parents are still in there. I'm hoping they will do most the work themselves. It's been 18hrs or so since they laid. So about 12-15hrs after being laid they started turning white. I only added a little meth blue as I said, just to try help the parents. As the hours go by more eggs are turning white. It was about 5% of them 3hrs ago. Now about 8-10% of them. Is this normal? Both parents still fanning too

The white eggs are unfertilized. I think if they stay yellow a day or so then they may hatch. I'm not sure what effect the methyl blue would have on the parents. If your trying to let the parents raise them they may eat them. My angels have spawned about 8 times and only the last two they ate quickly so I'm going to remove the eggs and care for them myself. Also, if they hatch, have you thought of food?
