Hello Fishlore!!

Some of you may have seen the video of my pair of angels and now, here are 2 videos of them , one is moments before they spawned and the second is of them actually spawning

Enjoy

Preparing to spawn
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=umBtyerLuAo

And here they are spawning
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JDRzv5Q8fHQ

There will also be a third video added here of all of the eggs once they've settled down

Thanks
Ben

Suffolk farmer- my accent is terrible lol!!

Well when they spawned in the other tank they had the light of a lamp nearby the tank when they spawned and the eggs lasted to day 3. I have put the lamp on a table right next to their tank so should this be okay? I would leave the tank lights on, but the tank is about 4ft away from my bed lol

LOL go outside or go in the living room and stop starring at them! (I know you are!) give them some privacy!!!!!!!! LOL

any light is good and you might want to pick up some of these in case you are light senstive and make sure you share a pic of that to go with your new hair doo!(which still rocks btw!)eye_mask__eyeshade__goggles_.jpg

Or not lol.

Just did a test run and she started picking them off as soon as I put the light out, so lights back on now
Should be a great nights sleep
Hopefully I don't get too much algae

get to bed ben!!!!!!!!
algae is something you can deal with after its all said and done! it wipes off or is cleanable (is that a word? LOL) if you really want to get some babies, at least where ive had them spawning, the lights need to be on ....the algae wont hurt anyone except you for looking at it

Yes mum lol!

Cleanable- if it isn't, it is now. A mod used it, so its got to be, right?

Okay, I won't worry about algae and try to look on the bright side!
Good night!

Just an update
After one day the parents are doing great!
The problem the first time they spawned was that they didn't remove the eggs with fungus, but this time they are
Will do another video in the next few days

Ben! How cool!!! Congrats on the Angel babies!
Did you move the eggs or the parents?

I think you should have left the camera sitting in your window so we could see you chase after the cat. lol
Hope your goldies are ok.

Keep the updates coming

I moved the parents out once the fry started swimming

Haha, I would have reminded you of a caveman
Next door has 2 cats, that one is new, the older one has learnt its lesson
The fish are fine

Ken- Thanks

Shawnie- Cool, what colour are your parents?
