    Hello! I woke up this morning to find that in my 20 gallon freshwater tank there was many things on the glass that I thought to be eggs. I have 1 angelfish, 1 rosy barb, and 1 African spotted leaf fish. If they are eggs what should I do with them? Also, the angelfish seems to be guarding the eggs. Thanks!

    Yup. Angel fish eggs.

    Cool. What should I do with them?

    If you only have one angel then they won't be fertile, you can scrape them off or leave them for the other fish to eat

    Might as well leave them. Eggs contain proteins and fatty acids that are great for your fish, so when they eat the eggs, they'll be getting a nice, healthy snack.

    I would leave them and let the fish eat them.
