very nice and a good ton of eggs.
Be sure your water parameters are good and leave them alone.... if its a first time spawn it may fail. It often takes a couple of trys for them to get it right.
I found that leaving a dim light on at night also helps them, especially if you have other fish in the tank.
Patience, patience, on your part will lead to success

When you say there are two laying eggs, I 'm confused maybe. Have you watched closely? If there are two laying the eggs, there's a big problem! Do you see one laying and then the second hovering over and spreading sperm? It is possible to have two females lay eggs. Doesn't work for very long that way, though.

If there are other fish, especially catfish who eat at night, it will be better to give them a "private room" by sectioning off the end or removing the other fish if you can. First time is iffey at best but fear not, they will come around again soon and that will give them practice and you time to be better prepped. Nature is grand!

it looked to me they were both laying eggs but maybe not ?
they look to be done laying now...now one is fanning the eggs and the other is guarding nobody else is allowed any where near them..

there are angels only in this tank..4 and a few small suckers
