How to care Angelfish Eggs?

Unread postby SCORPIO » Tue Nov 24, 2015 7:52 pm

I am keeping six angel fishes in 36X18X18 inch tank. All of they are living peacefully.

Today one of the pair laid hundreds of egg on a driftwood.

Both the parents caring eggs.

If any other fish is coming near to eggs, parents attacking.

What to do to save these eggs? Should I remove other fishes from aquarium? Any other precaution? Please guide me.

normal case of commercial breeding eggs are separated from parents and hatched in another tank .
In community tank its difficult to care eggs
If you remove other fishes than the pairs, the pair will care and hatch the eggs !
any disturbance will provoke them and eat egg/fry is common event !!!!

Tile pieces are provided in tank to lay egg they are removed to jars with antifungus added
here Iam keeping eggs like this for the first 36 ~40 hrs then they are moved to prepared hatching tank
