Sunday night spawning - Update

While sitting at dinner, I took a casual look into my 75 gal tank. This is what I saw.









Just when you think you're having a quiet night.

Alas, the event has met with the usual. I looked in the tank this morning and each and every one is gone.

There is a bright side. Now that two of them have decided to pair up, I did what I knew I was going to have to do. I moved the single male back into the 30 gal. Prior to me moving him, the mated male keep going after him, even though he had moved completely to the other side of the tank.

What a mean guy he is now. 8O

Is it true that angels are notourious for eating their own fry?
Mate used to breed them, and says they used to suck the fry through the plastic mesh he had to seperate them..

rgds.

I have read that angels are usually good parents and will care for the fry. I could be wrong because when my angels hatched, the fry were gone in a few hours. I don't know who the culprit was though.

I have heard and observed they need three or four tries to get it right.

Congrats on a first spawn!!!!!

My theory is this.........: Most fry are artificially raised, and therefore when they have kids of their own......they don't know what to do to raise them!
Just my idea......

Many times angels will eat their eggs or fry if too much activity is going on around them. If you want to raise the fry, the best way is to set up a breeding tank and remove the parents immediatly after spawning. Also, it not uncommon for two female angels to pair off. If the eggs are not fertilized they will be eaten.

Still that's a great event to witness . What was temp and pH at the time of spawning JC? How long after your last water change did they spawn?

Thanks for chiming in Brian. I did my water change on Sunday afternoon so this was immediately afterward (perhaps 5 hours afterward). As a result, I don't test ph immediately afterward water changes but I do test it prior. At the time, the ph was 7.2 and the temp was 81d.

To tell the truth, the angels did not display any interest in spawning until sometime last week (I noticed some nudging beginning last week). When I saw which two had mated, I was surprised. 8O
