BlueMoonJay created the topic: We were wrong....

Came home from work tonight and I noticed that my male zebra was a little more aggressive than usual to my sd's and also noticed he was picking at my intake tube... I thought that was out of the ordinary. Thinking that I had 2 males due to a previous post I had hoped would get a positive sex on them, apparently we were wrong!!! I had left again and come home about 2 hours later to see that my angels have spawned!!! So, now I'm certain my Marble Veil is a female!! Here's the best pic I could get of the eggs on my intake tube of my filter :woohoo: :blink: B)

I hope so. I have to do some major altering to my filters so I don't suck them up. I surely was not expecting this, so I admit, I'm not prepared for this. Will it be ok to leave the eggs in the tank, and as they hatch, etc..

Wow that's really cool, I had angels long ago which laid eggs on the filter pipe as well but I can't remember what happened to them. I do remember how nasty they got to their tankmates at the time though haha

The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed.

it should be OK to leave the eggs, angels tend to be very good parents, mine ate my first batch of eggs but then again they are still young, second batch will be coming soon i hope

Try putting a piece of sponge on the intake so they don't get sucked up...but Angels may eat them.......they may eat 1st few spawns anyway, then settle in to be good parents.

Good luck!! I always made nice coin off Angels when I bred them.

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.

The spawn was ate. I just got done checking at my intake tube was clean with nothing on it. So, today I'm going to find a 30 or bigger for the other tank mates and move them so the angels have the 55 to themselves. Or just move the Angels also for privacy.
