Why is my male angelfish attacking the female angelfish while breeding

He keeps attacking her to stay away from the eggs and she canít go near them even though they are her eggs. He keeps putting up his fins and tapping her chest or sometimes swimming super fast at her (sheís jumped out of the water because of it but it was covered so she didnít like fall on the floor). Honestly I canít believe how fast they can swim, I took a video of the attack and when they attack itís so fast you canít even see it in the video itís just all blurry.

Pretty angels!! They do that. He might be tired of her eating eggs. Or, you could have them switched up and she is hitting him. The female will generally be on the eggs and him in the area

Nah they switch back and forth just get kinda violent with each other sometimes and I saw her lay them so definitely not switched up and also Iíve noticed they keep going to this same spot at the bottom corner behind a plant. Are they planning to move the eggs there or something?

My angels move wigglers to another plant leaf. They do bicker back and forth through the process.

If they are spawning then they like one another at least a little

So half my eggs are still alive and itís been 3 days (tbh I thought theyíd die by now because I didnít have the equipment like a sponge filter set up because I didnít know it would happen) so what do I feed them? Can I just feed them really really small flakes? When do I have to feed them?

Cause those are the tastier ones he he. They may not have actually ate them. They could have moved them so look around the tank for them.

Those are standard Silver Angels, sometimes called "wild type".
When the fry start developing in the egg, they move a little. Sometimes the parents can't resist the movement and eat the eggs. That is why they ate the good eggs and left the bad ones. Happens all the time.
