Hi Skippi. My angels like to lay their eggs on flat slate that is high enough to reach middle of tank. Those tubes should work well though. I had one pair that always laid their eggs on the return jet of my filter.

They should learn with time In my case it was vice-versa: it was the mom who would eat the eggs! Dad would guard them and try to peck at her if she'd try to eat them, lol. But eventually, she'd eat them all :-\.

YUP The female's breeding tube is rather round, while the male's breeding tube is more pointed You DEFINITELY have a mated pair. Are they both leopard angels? If yes, you're going to have little leopard babies!
