My marbel angle fish laid eggs! Neat.

So I guess I just need to wait and see if they are fertilized or not. They should turn white if they aren't going to give young correct? At least one of the fish is guarding the eggs, it didn't like me getting near them at all, tried to bite me.

Thanks. I've been watching them. They are both guarding the eggs, taking turns. They fan water over them with their fins, rearrange them a little, etc. Very cool to watch the behavior.

Well they just paired up, I guess I got lucky. Although I've heard two females will do this in the absence of a male.

As for selling them I think I have to because I am now out of tank space.

um nope, the females can produce eggs at anytime. They get fertilized by the male after they are laid. At least that's my understanding.

Angels are awesome. My male cannot get his part done. Laid three times and nothing. I'm hoping your guy is better at it. Good luck and if it works I'd like a couple.
