bad news

Well, I kept water flowing over the angelfish eggs, removed the ones i saw that were fungused or not fertilized and i thought i was doing ok until i woke up and the eggs that grew big had fungus all over them. It is ok though as my angels will spawn again. I just have to get them into a tank all on their own now. Eggs come and go but the enjoyment they bring me lasts a lifetime!

I think there is something you can add to the water to prevent fungus. Why not try letting the angels parent the eggs on their own? They are pretty good at removing bad eggs after they take a few spawnings to learn.

Various antifungals, although meth blue seems to be the long-time favourite.

Sorry to hear that, but they will spawn again!

That's too bad but you've got the right attitude. Spawning fish is a learning experience.

FWIW I use Formalin as an anti fubgal for eggs. It doesn't color the water or stain the silicon like meth blue does.

thanks guys ... it most certainly is a learning experience ... i got live bearers going at it all the time now. just to raise eggs. I am HOPING to get a used 50 gallon aquarium and stand sometime soon to put all 5 of my angels into it (here's hoping that the parents won't eat the eggs with the other angels in with them).

i know that adding meth blue, in a way, harms the healthy fish. Is this true with Formalin or does it only affect eggs. I am really hesitant about adding any medication to my tank with healthy fish in it (still working on getting a QT tank back up and running).

Nope. It doesn't harm them at all unless you over do it.
