Are these Angelfish eggs?

    Do angelfish lay eggs? I always thought they had live fry. However, my two more aggressive Angels (who I think are a breeding pair) have been acting funny today. On the side of my tank there are little egg like things and the Angels are acting as if they are fertilizing the eggs (maybe?!). It's something I've never seen so I'm not too sure how to explain it. I have this picture but it's not very clear. I hope it helps.

    How do I make sure these eggs survive?

    You can't make them do anything :)

    To help them survive, you can remove the eggs and put them into a separate, cycled tank. But you also need to worry about fungus killing some of the eggs. You can do a bit of research online to help you figure out everything the fry need. I'm sure some members will help contribute too.

    Ok thanks! I'm a little worried about moving them though. I'm scared I'll harm them in the process.

    You could always leave them and see what happens. The parents don't always eat them.

    The parents are actually watching over them and running all the rest off. However, they had eggs in two different spot in the tank and are only watching over one set. The other Angels I have already ate those. It wasn't good but the parents didn't seem to care about those babies like they do these.

    Maybe these will hatch! I'd remove them shortly after though or they might get eaten.
