As many of you know we have been having really terrible weather in the south. While the wind was blowing, torrential rains and amid tornado warnings and sightings my angelfish were spawning.
Many times during barometric changes angelfish will spawn readily.
1) Angelfish eggs on Java Fern
2) Dad guarding eggs
3) Dad guarding wigglers
4) Dad and Mom standing off the evil angelfish reflections
5)Dad trying to make me leave his babies alone

You're welcome!
What is the white thing floating in the 4th picture?

Are you going to grow the babies out?

That white ring is an old feeding ring I made out of the top of a butter tub. It now prevents floating plants from swirling all over the tank.

I will probably grow these out

Oh, cool. Off topic, I know, but I never thought of using a feeding tube for that reason.
It also probably helps to keep the food off and out of the floating plants.
Great idea.
(Going to look for an old butter tub now lol)

A feeding ring keeps the food in one area instead of floating all over the tank.
It really helps you observe your fish eating and how well they compete for food also.
Now I use the rings to hold floating plants in one area. Using a twist tie over the edge of the tank and the other end over the ring keeps it in one place.
The narrow rI'm of the butter tub lids make good ones too. The one in the pic is the wider edge of the tub it's self.

Here's a thread that had instructions on how to make feeding rings

How awesome! Angelfish babies are by far the cutest. They are a beautiful pair and don't seem to mind much about your hand being so close either...lol. Good luck with them.

Well I came home tonight and the babies are gone! Tonight was the night to move them into the grow out tank. I guess the frisky Rasbora had a snack.
Mom and dad were doing such a good job guarding them I thought they would be OK until tonight. Boy these 11 shifts are killing my brain and my energy level I probably should have moved them last night when I was looking at them. UGH!
