so my 2 angelfish have been very busy cleaning one of the leaves of my giant valisneria, seems to be mostly the male who is cleaning, I will have to move the fry as for the moment they are in my main tank and lots of hungry fish in there...

should i move the parents along with the fry or can the fry be hatched without parents tending to it?

Sorry I missed this you can move just the eggs, put them in a 10g with an air stone close to them to create a current then dose the tank with either hydrogen peroxide or meth blue

If you use hydrogen peroxide the dose is 2ml/gallon and you will need to redose every 24 hours
meth blue only needs to be dosed once

If will take 2 days to hatch and start wiggling then 7-9 more to go free swimming, on the second day of all free swimming you will need to feed 2-3 drops of baby brine shrimp once a day

i just moved the angelfish to a seperate tank so i guess the possibility of spawning will take some more time as they need to get used to their new environment. as soon as they spawn i'll be posting a video.

as per demand by nina, a small update, tank is far from clean and finished, just an update to show the 2 fishies :) i've allready fryproofed my filters with sponge and soon i'll be adding a DIY hood



edit: just added my 3" panaque to the tank to grow a little faster, once he gets to about 7" i'll be moving him to my main tank, i also found some anatoma helena were still in the gravel i got from the previous owner, those will help nicely because my LFS has snails in all their plant tanks.

they're such a pretty pair! Thanks so much for the picture :)

Are you going to add some slate for them to spawn against, or are you hoping they'll use the plant?

I really, really like the one on the left (the male?). The black line on the top of his fin is beautiful, like someone painted it there.

according to the lfs, the left one is supposed to be a female, i will be adding a piece of slate soon yes, providing more then spawnsite. i have added a piece of bogwood too a few minutes ago, but as we are planning on moving within 1-2 months i'm not gonna set it up completely yet, this will become more of a planted tank once we move.
