    So most of you know I have been breeding Angelsfish for a bit now. I currently have 2 separate tanks with Juvies. One has about 40 of them. Their size ranges from 2" to 2.5" and the other tank has about 40 more and are about 1.25" to 1.75" from top to bottom fin. So about 2 weeks or so one pair of Angels spawned again and they are about 3/16" got about 30 and then 2 days ago the same pair spawned again and got wigglers yesterday. Wow been a little busy lately. :anim_63: Got tons of them now. :oops:

    The little ones are way to small for pics but probably tomorrow I get the ones bigger in size.

    Congrats! I love watch angel fry grow from little torpedo looking things to actually having wings (fins :))

    Thanks guys. I know what you mean. They grow their little fins really fast tho. They look so cool as tiny miniature angels. Haha The ones that hatched a week or so ago are getting their fins already. I got a lot of Marbles again tho. I'm thinking about getting a veil Koi to get a different strand going too. Kois are so awesome looking.

    I have to disagree. I LOVE my marble, he is an amazingly beautiful boy.
    I'm not a fan of the koi look, much prefer the darker colours on angels. Even white angels I don't like as much.

    I'm trying to figure out how I can get a female to a decent size for my Gandalf, and if I can get them to pair off. It's annoying that he's mature now, but doesn't have a mate (I didn't know about them being picky choosers when I got them!).

    I know Mine pair up by one Marble koi with a smoke and another marble koi with a goldie. Now I got a Pearlscale silver with a smoke and see if they pair up.

    Thanks guys. I just took some pics now. The first is the first group.(oldest) then followed by the medium sized guys. the third pic are the ones that are just getting their fins and last the wigglers. You can see at the bottom of the pic on the left one that is pretty much ready to be a free swimmer. Hope you enjoy. :happy0034:
