so i've come to the conclusion that 1/4" angelfish fry will eat freshly laid angelfish eggs, now i need a tank for the swimmers as well as one for the eggs.
luckily i get batches of eggs every 2-3 weeks from my 2 couples so one lost batch isn't the end of the world :p
once our new kitchen is installed end of this month i'll be looking where i can put another tank for the angelfish to grow in

160 gallon south american
190 gallon malawi

Congrats on the breeding pair, and new kitchen! i know where you are coming from, I just moved all my carpintis fry from the first batch into a 10 gal after I saw a few grazing on the eggs from the second batch. Those little guys are a pain to catch, every time I thought I had most of them i would come back and find dozens more. I plan on doing what basset suggests and getting some Rubbermaid tubs and sponge filters to house fry in. Is a 10 gal with 125+ fish overstocked?

Thats what I thought, if you go by the inch per gallon rule, I should be able to squeeze at least 10 more in there. :laugh:

Popss, I will not tell her, and will alter the post if I need to, but as caleb said the chain stores will probably give her the green light on 75 glow fish for 75 gals. So any time she is looking at fish you will have to interrupt the conversation when it comes to numbers. Good luck!
