Angels spawning!

Well, it seems that I may have a pair of Koi angels! I caught them in the act and judging by the breeding tubes I am hoping that it is actually a male and female pair. I am not optimistic about this time leading to fry but hompefully if I give them a couple of tries, I can set up a tank to raise some little ones in!

Congrats! If you saw an elongated cone like one on the female and a short stumpy one on the male, you are halfway there.

Congrats. They are great fish. Mine do it every two weeks or so just like clockwork.

Congrats. I hope it works out for you. Nothing more satisfying than having your fish spawn successfully.

I guess I am less confident now. The breeding tubes appeared to be different in that one was much broader than the other, but I would not have characterized one as much longer--oh well.

Agreed!

I have been going to VIPets for the most part. The one out on Division seems to have a better selection for FW, but I frequent the one on Plainfield as well. Where have you been going?

i go to VIPets also. usually the one on plainfield, it's a little closer to downtown. have you been to the new (i think) curious world down on breton and 29th? i just noticed it the other day, stopped in and all their stuff looks really taken care of but the salesperson was "more of a cat person"... lol anyways, they had some cool fish, good prices.
