Spawning angelfishes
 
Totally unprepared for these, expected but still not sure what to do next. My tank of non-tanga which consists of 12 cory sterbei/11 white cloud minnows/2 gold nugget plecos/1 flying fox/7 angelfishes became a love nest for a pair of angelfishes. This is their first spawn since I bought 8 juveniles 4 months ago. Last 2 days I saw them repeatedly cleaning my couple of bogwoods and only last night I went to a lfs and bought myself a spawning A-shaped slate, and 1 hrs ago I cam back home and saw so many eggs on the slate. :eek:

Now I am in a dilemma...........:confused: decision time......what am I supposed to do with them. Any good suggestions? I have so many tanks but none of them are available. My thoughts are either >>

1) Remove the slate with eggs and hatch them separately; or
2) Ignore them totally and lose some hundreds living things soon.

I have decided to separate the 'eggs' and artificially hatch them (without the parents). Should know outcome tomorrow or next day.

Angelfish spawn
 
Just an update....

1) Day 1, the angelfish pair spawn on the spawning slate....about 400 eggs;
2) Day 2, the eggs seem lesser as I believed those not fertilized are eaten/gotten rid by the pair; Slate is removed to another tank to artificially hatch the eggs;
3) Day 3/4 (Today), some turned white, the rest dropped off from the spawning slate and became wrigglers.....about 50+ of them I think. Wrigglers look a lot smaller than most tanganyikan's ciclids eggs/fries. Hope they will take crushed dry food in 3~4 days time when they are free swimming, as I hate to hatch brine shrimps (hated the siphoning process).

Will keep u guys updated, cheers!

Bro it's not a matter of what kind of house you live in it is how you decorate your tanks, your experience and the way you keep your fishes, how you play with the filtrations, maintain your pH and such to let your fishes thrive that ends up a good result and accomplishment in this hobby. Put in effort and passion into it and you'll get the kind of satisfaction when you reach their stage.
End of the day it's just a hobby, never compare just do our best;)
