Centromochlus I hope so.

I was thinking about getting one or a few more angelfish from , has anyone had any experience with this hatchery? Looks like they have some beautiful angelfish.

tazcrash69 Don't worry, IME, once they start spawning, they will keep spawning, as long as the tank conditions are favorable.

Centromochlus Thanks for your replies.

I was hoping they would be able to survive, but i guess not. Oh well,
maybe another time. :P

yoink Agreed, it usually take awhile for the parents to get the hang of it. I had two that would lay eggs regularly every few weeks, each time they would get further along until i finally had a small herd of them. The other fish in the tank always ended up eating them after they were swimming around on their own.

eyebeatbadgers Almost certainly not. The parents will likely eat their first several spawns. The cardinals might find the wigglers a tasty treat too.

You can, in the future, remove the eggs, and raise them yourself pretty easily. There's plenty of info on the web on it.

Angelfish laid eggs- Will they survive?

Over the summer, i've been staying in california. A few days ago, i went back to my house in arizona for a day and i saw my angelfish lay eggs on my in-water UV sterilizer. I was reading a bit on breeding angelfish, and i found out that eggs usually hatch in 3-4 days. My question is-- will they survive?

They're in an 85 gallon aquarium, with only driftwood and a few freshwater plants, and some cardinal tetras. I'm not able to do anything to help them, as i am in California for another 9 days.
