I found these this morning at feeding time. Any one know whose they could be? The angel fish are spending a lot of time near them, but i also have corys. Any ideas/ help?

I believe they are angel eggs. I'm fairly new at this, but I know that angels lay their eggs in rows so as the female lays them the male can fertilize them.

Ready through the wigglers at last thread. Its all about angelfish breeding. But you should have wigglers after 3 days, and the fry will be swimming about 5 days after that. They don't need food until they swim as they will still have their yolk sack. Baby brine shrimp is suggested food, but hard boiled egg yolk also works good.

Wow thank you. I wasn't even aware that I had a breeding pair until I saw the eggs! The proud parents seem to be doing well. They don't seem too interested in eating the eggs anyway. I hope they feel the same when they hatch!

If they are caring for the eggs chances are they will also care for fry, but the issue comes when they start swimming... the other fish in the tank will try to eat them. It would be in the pairs best interest, as well as their tank mates to get them a 20g tall tank for them, with a sponge filter and heater, as well as a piece of slate or upside down plant pot to spawn on, and a plant or 2 for security. No gravel or anything as it will trap fry, as well as waste and bacteria... pm me if you need more help.

Wigglers this morning! I think I might get a tank divider to separate the angels from the rest of the fish.

So this is what I came up with . It was the only spare I had. Hopefully it will suit the little guys.

No gravel!!!! The fry will get trapped in it and die. It also hides and holds waste and harmful bacteria and makes the tank harder to clean.

Also, just noticed what you have for a filter in there. I have the same one, and it sucked up and killed quite a few fry...

Still have around thirty fry. I did address the filter issue with some netting. They seem to be avoiding it alright.

Yes. I removed the gravel and even had about fifteen free swimmers! But my landlord decided to work on a power line without letting anyone know and the poor little guys died from no heater =[ =[ . Im sooooooo disappointed. Im hoping my breeding pair will spawn again. =\

They will!!! Get them a sponge filter and you should be able to just let them raise the fry. That's what I do. So awesome to watch them care for babies!!!
