Question Angel Pairs

How young do angels have to be to pair off? I have a couple of juveniles that are awfully chummy with each other. Been watching them for awhile and they haven't separated from each other.

They mature around 8 months of age and can pair any time.

Good...thank u for that piece of advice. Now Rivercats....I have a mature pair that have laid eggs twice. I didn't think that any of the eggs survived the second time, BUT several did and they hatched! I thought I had baby shrimps at first till I noticed the parents scooping up several stragglers and gently blowing them back into the "nest" I watched for awhile and they were definitely protecting them from other tank mates. Sadly enough they batch didn't make it cause I caught them too late and mistook them for something else. If and when they do spawn again....how do you feed such tiny fish to get them to survive?

I haven't messed with angelfish fry since the 80's so I would actually post this in the Breeding forum. Although I've heard many talk about looking up and reading the thread "wigglers at last" that supposedly has a ton of this type information available.
