Conditions for breeding angels

Hi


Iv recently brought 15 angel fish and I'm hoping to get a few pairs out of them, but was wondering what the water conditions need to be?

well i have 7 breeding pair.. they like lower ph and will live longer and be helthier but not nessary these days. most angel fish bought in pet store are in a ph range of 7.5 to 8 and higher. if u want to breed them i recommend doing it in a bare bottom tank 82 degree temp. low light. to prep them for breeding i use blood worms one time a day alternated with flake food. if u choose to let the parents raise the fry put a few fake plants with big wide or round leafs in there so the parents have a place to move them around. if u choose to hatch your own eggs its another ball game lol. pm me if i can help
