    My angle fish is making passes over a leaf but no eggs are coming out and it does not have a mate it is only about 3 to4 months old. It is in a 3 foot tank with 4 other angel fish one of them is an adult.

    It has now started to lay but I don't know why because it has no partner

    it is normal for many fish to do this and anglefish are one of the main ones if it has no partner then the eggs will be white/clear milky colour signifying that they are not fertilized if they are fertilized then they will be yellow so because yous has no partner it will just eat the eggs as they are very nutrtious and are not fertilized.

    Hello. It's very common for females of a lot of species to lay eggs without a mate. It's just part of their cycle and it happens.
