Angels Spawned in Community 55G

Hey, my angels apparently paired and have laid eggs on the tanks wall. I've never kept angels before, let alone tried to breed them. Any ideas or suggestions on what should be done?

Thanks!

depends on whether or not you want to keep the babies eventually.

I'd love to try to keep some of them. I've always been interested in breeding and seeing where it could go!

Depending on what type of fish you have in tank, they most likely won't last till they hatch or free swim, I would suggest try to scrape some off wall and hatch yourself by putting in a breeder net with bubbler right under neath

Stocked with an albino bristlenose pleco (super small), a rainbow shark (3 in), dwarf Gaurami, 3 female sword/Molly and then the pair! Lightly planted tank currently.

As of this morning, about 50% of the eggs have turned white which I understand is a fungus because they aren't fertile?

Yeah they are dead eggs the parents should eat them off, the pleco might eat the eggs.

Yepp, all the eggs are gone. Is there anything I should do to help the process or make them more successful?

Either move them to their own tank to breed of removed the eggs

Two things you can do.

1. Put them into their own tank.
2. Put in a divider and isolate them.

One other thing you could try, put a spawning slate in there and when they spawn on the slate, remove it and raise them yourself. Chances of a successful spawn in a community tank are practically nil.
