2 of my angels paired up and spawned in my community tank. Yes I know the fry are not likely to survive and I’m ok with that. Honestly I’m surprised we are 36 hours in and they haven’t eaten the eggs. I didn’t see them spawn but I finally saw a breeding tube so I’m thinking the marble is the male of the pair.

I wish I could breed my angels, but unfortunately they are too young to breed and are one of the more difficult fish to breed in the home aquarium.

I think the difficulty in breeding depends on the kind and if they were parent raised. More likely to take care of their own fry if their parents raised them. I think the eggs may have been there longer than I thought because they are getting a little bouncy. So far parents are still diligently caring for them.

I currently own wild caught altum angels, which are known to be difficult to keep and breed.

Yes, those are much more difficult. I have wrigglers today but not many. Mom was having a hard time keeping up with them as they fell off the leaf. Dad was busy patrolling for intruders so he wasn’t much help. Unfortunately he missed the fact a Cory has camped himself under the leaf and if sucking them up as they hit the ground.
