    How many angels do you have and how big is their aquarium?

    You have 2 angels in a 25 gallon - it could be a space problem.

    congrats!! do you still have all the other fish too? if so, the eggs will probably be eaten or the other fish harmed from very protective mom and dad

    It is very exciting
    yep the other fish are there and yes mom is very protective. the left half of the tank is all hers.

    Im gonna remove the fry as soon as they swim.
    So do i stop the water changes for a while until I remove the fry.
