    Taking them out is probably the only way they will make it. It’s a tough world out there for a fish.

    Welcome to fishlore!! :)

    Do you even have anything to feed the fry? That is kind of important for their survival. The only thing my fry will eat at the beginning is live freshly hatched baby brine shrimp.

    Once they start free swimming their chances of survival in a community tank aren't very good. And again, without the right food, they might not make it anyway.

    Also angelfish need decent sized grow out tanks and LOTS of water changes to develop properly. What size is the community tank? Do you have another tank you could set up?

    If you plan to leave them in the community tank and just cross your fingers, then at least cover the filter intake so they don't get sucked up when they start free swimming. :)

    If you are serious about trying to raise angelfish babies, you will have the opportunity every couple weeks. So you might want to prepare yourself for a future spawn rather than this spawn. By learning how to hatch baby brine shrimp (very easy) and getting a 2nd tank for the babies.

    It depends. What other fish do you have in there? How often are you doing water changes? What are the parameters?

    A 55 is really large for newborns. They may have trouble finding food in a large tank. I like to start them in smaller tanks.

    Hatching baby brine shrimp is the best way to feed them. They need to see the food moving to be enticed to eat it. I have never had luck with crushed flakes or powdered fry food.
