I have a pair of koI angels in the 75 G tank and once in a while they spawn but the eggs get eaten before I can get them out. the other night I noticed tehm defending a corner of the tank, and when I looked down into teh tank I saw wigglers lined up in a line about 3 inches long on the silicon of the corner. I sucked them out with a turkey baster and put them in a fry tank. the pics aren't great but I wanted to share.

Butterfly that is so cute! Now you're going to have many baby koI angels. And koI angels are so beautiful ... so you're going to have a lot of fun with the little ones. How many do you think are there? What are you going to do with all of them when they grow up? Are you going to keep at least some?

I got some more today!! I got 4 little platys - lucky I saw your photo to know what to look for cos the other platy that was born on thursday was just like a minI platy whereas the newer ones are MUCH smaller and far less developed. I wonder why the other one was so well developed already?? Amazing what nature does... :

isn't it amazing!! Since Platys are livebearers you get to see them swim immediately after birth. The fry in the pictures were first angelfish eggs and after three days they hatch and are wigglers.then three days later they were swimming around. Its really so cool. Have three batches of Angel fish eggs right now, koI & marble,KoI and sunset blusher and black lace.

LOL that's so adorable! How many eggs are there? Do all of them survive? How many angels will you have from these eggs?

That's daddy guarding the eggs(He's one of my babies and is about 18 months old) and he wasn't happy that I was even at that end of the tank ;D Can you tell? LOL there are probably 70 - 100 eggs there. There's always a few that don't hatch or get eaten. I usually average about 25- 50 fry. I think everybody in town has some of my angels all they have to do is say "awww" and they go home with some will try to take pics after they hatch.
