    Hi Darrell,

    Sorry you're going through this problem. I'm not experienced with breeding angels so hope another member with that kind of experience or info can swing by to help fast. Good luck! :;hf

    once you have free swimmers, you should net the parents out and put them back in the bigger tank and just let the fry grow out alone :)

    They might still be too young to produce healthy fry? How old are they? I've read a few places that the first few batches will be eaten by the parents and that the fry that survive will typically be weaker.

    Well Me and my wife have been breeding Angels now for about 3 months and gotta say that we don't leave the eggs in the tank with their parents for more than a day or two. For 2 reasons 1. been water quality and second other fish that are with their parents sharing the same tank. Like the video above specified water changes are really important we use RO water from our filtration system. We prefer sponge filter tho. Along with one good air stone close to the area where the eggs are attached. The eggs need good water flow. Once any eggs become white pick them out if not picked in time fungus will spread to all the eggs. Once the fry are free swimmers we fed them brine shrimp newly hatched if the shrimp are too big they fish can eat them another option is decapsulated brine shrimp eggs. after about 2 months or so they fry will stop eating them so need to switch to a better diet. We used frozen blood worms, spirulina with brine shrimp and crushed flake food. Hope this helps. If any questions PM me. :;hi2
