The day AFTER they all are free swimming is soon enough to start feeding. Working I can only feed them 0530 and 8pm and they do fine with twice a day. You will be able to see orange bellies when they are full of BBS.

Ahh ok that is indeed good to know. Hopefully I will get it all squared away...the anticipation of them becoming free swimming is killing me. Also really need to do a water change on that tank as soon as they become free swimming as well.

Day 7: Today ended up being a hectic day because I was unprepared for my second pair to finally start laying eggs. Of course as always they lay on a leaf rather than my slate or my other slate or the large rocks or the clay pot or the mag float.... I have a 10 gallon dedicated to hatching eggs without the parents (least that is the plan). I debated on wither or not I should start artificially hatching this soon in my breeding experience (1 week). I decided on the why not approach (tank is set up, I have meth blue, it will remove the desired leaf, and reduce aggression in the community tank). After calling my uncle...several times...I finally cut the leaf and moved it. The pics below are of the two parents and the current set up for hatching. If you see any apparent issues such as bubbles too close or no chance with a cut leaf, please let me know and give me some advice. (Note:5 hours from move only 1 white egg)

As for the tank I have previously been talking about (laid 2/28), there is still no updates. The fry are still wigglers with the parents taking good care of them....tomorrow will tell how good the parents are.

Just curious, are people able to see my pictures?? Also this morning my free swimming fry got their first taste of baby brine and loved it. The eggs in the 10 gallon have hatched and dropped onto the bottom of the tank or a rock I have in there. Everything is a learning experience. Who knows if the fry will make it to tomorrow morning when because of the water change I did tonight...

Real good fish. Strong genetics on both sides. Good luck with the kids!

Default Day 9, 10, and 11

All the fry seem to be doing well. I have had to rescue a couple that get trapped beneath the gravel. Always a good feeling but the parents hate my in the thick of things. Here are pictures of days 9, 10 and 11.

Yea I know...the other night I started peaking into craigslist. If I can get a 29 gallon for essentially free may just do it. My poor roommate must be getting tired of the expanding collection.

Parent Raised Tank Day 15: Everyone in that tank is growing way faster than I could have imagined. Every time I feed them, I feel like the orange dot, that is their belly, keeps getting larger. They are significantly larger than the new free swimmers I have and they are only 6 days apart. I am doing a 25% water change on them every day since it is such a small tank.
Any thoughts on if that is enough or too much??

Solo 10g Day 9: This is the second day they have been free swimmers. It is great seeing them all swim together and eat brine shrimp. This tank is already exceeding my expectations and hope to keep it that way. I did a 50% water change today and will start doing 25% every day from now on.
Any suggestions on how to clean the bottom of that tank while they are so so so small???

Also the parents of the fry in the 10g decided to lay eggs in the 55. Sorry tetras and other angel, you've just entered the thunder dome. Momma is one mean sob.

Hope ya enjoy the pics and would love thoughts on those questions

So it's been a while since I have updated about my angels. I sold the 10 that were remaining in the 20 gallon with the parents. They all looked beautiful. I still have over a 100 in my 10 gallon. However I am upgrading their standard of living to a 58 gallon tank this weekend or early next week. Pics soon to come

Nice. Those are really beautiful. I haven't had angels since I was little kid (well, technically, Grandpa had angels), but I could see getting some like yours if I ever do a large tank.
