Angelfish breeding, just thought I'd share.

My angels spawned on Thursday, and the babies got moved to a different part of the tank Saturday. Papa actually jumped out of the tank when my mom was feeding them two days ago(parents are really protective and aggressive when breeding), but he seems fine. She thinks he hit the couch on his way down, so it must of cushioned his fall.

So ya, that's it for now, but I thought I'd share their progress with you guess.

Oh, and it's their fourth time spawning with us, but only their second time we're letting the babies grow. The first time, we were caught by surprise, and the third time, we kept the babies in the tank so they ate the eggs, more protien.

None, but I could try. They don't normally come out properly, though.

OK, got some!

1 is babies, in their own tank
2 is Mama in front and Papa in the back, the eggs/ fry are of the log in the back
3 is a close-up of eggs. There are probably about four hundred and they look like tiny beige balls with tails and they kinmda look as if they're spazzing.

The first picture?
Babies get fed Newly hatched Baby Shrimp Brine for about the first... two months?(until the next spawning, really), and now they're fed crushed flakes, and they like the algae on anything.
And, no, I won't be keeping all of them. Maybe some, and I plan to give at least one to my friend, and the rest will probably get sold to a petshop near me. They buy them for forty cents a piece yet sell them for 8 dollars, which is kinda stupid, but still.
The biggest of the babies is about the size of a dime right now, who we call Jumbo.
