Help! Angelfish eggs!

So I have 2 angels, couldn't figure out why they were being so territorial and aggressively guarding the left side of the tank. Low and behold I spot these tonight. I know NOTHING about this. How long until they turn into fish and what do I do to ensure they all don't get eaten? Help!! I literally know nothing about breeding lol. Click image for larger version

ETA: there is also a large pleco in this tank- will he eat them or will the angels keep them away? Click image for larger version

The angels will try to fight off the plecto. The plecto always wins. Plectos are the reason why I never get baby parrot fish. Parrot fish are a lot more aggressive than angels.

The only way the eggs and babies will survive is by removing all the other fish and leaving the angels alone.

Its difficult for angels to fend off every fish. If they get frustrated they have a habit of eating there own eggs.

There's no way I have the time or the room to set up another tank and get it to where I can move the others into it. I didn't get the angels for breeding I just picked the 2 healthiest looking and a few months later here we are lol.

Although I will say the pleco stays low when the light is on- shouldni leave the light on until they spawn or will that just mess up the fish?

They need a diurnal cycle. If they are dedicated they will sleep in shifts so one or the other is guarding

The angels depending on how big they are can handle everything but the pleco. Most angel breeders pull eggs because parenting skills aren't good. Let them try, if you keep them happy they will spawn and spawn
