A pair of my son's angels have been unsucessfully trying to spawn. They have been laying eggs about every week or so for over a month, but they all have turned white and dissapeared.

As my luck would have it , they apparently have finally figured it out and we now have wiggling eggs tonight.

We are moving on Monday, and I am wondering what I am going to do with the wigglers?

I can't seem to figure out how to succesfully move them to our new house.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

what size tank is it? Any way to leave some of the water in the tank while moving?

So sorry I didn't include that info in my post.
It's a 55 gallon community tank so I need to empty everything. :'(

I actually don't really want baby angels, but it feels wrong to take them away when they finally got it right. I had begun to think one of the pair was confused and they were two girls.

The breeding pair are headed for a 30 gallon once we get moved so the community tank can be peaceful again.

What are the wigglers attached to? Can you put it and them in a bowl for the move?

They have moved them several times. From the filter intake tube to various anubis leaves.
I think that's what I will try to do...just put the plant with them on it in a bowl and cross my fingers. Thanks.

I would suck them up with the gravel vac and hope for the best.
