Eggs again. Just a few questions (pg.2) Thanks!

Ok i was looking at my aquarium and i noticed some white stuff on my amazon sword plant. after looking at them for a while i noticed they were EGGS! I have never dealt with this kind of thing before and i think it was my angelfish because she (i think) has been by it for a long while. how should i deal with them? how do i know when their fertilized.

Thanks
Jonathan/SeaSerpant

From the best of my knowledge on this topic, unless you don't have any large snails, they are most likely your Angel's eggs. If so, leave them alone, and if there's anything in the tank that could find them as a nice meal, or threaten their security, take them out. (that is if you WANT them to hatch)

I'm not 100% on this so I'd say google it or search it here for some reassurance.

K i will. i don't have anything asides from some other angelfish and gouramis that might be trouble but it looks like their well protected. i have no snails in my tank and hopefully never will. i want them to hatch but i don't know what to do with them if they do.

Thanks

are you really ready to raise angels? It is not easy. Just let them get eaten. Your going to need huge grow out tanks to raise them as well as lots of WC and growing BBS ect

I agree- raising angels can be even more difficult than raising discus b/c angels have been domesticated so long most of the angels in the hobby have lost their parenting instincts. If yours do tend to the eggs and fry though that would be pretty cool!

Thanks

My angels lay eggs every two or three weeks. I did manage do hatch them once, but none survived. Maybe I'll try it again sometime for fun. But you need to setup stuff for breeding, not just do it in your display tank.

White eggs are bad. Typicaly the angels should pick the white ones off and eat them so that they don't rott and spread fungus to the good eggs which are transparent.
