Black angel eggs? Isn't that good, Frank? My breeding angelfish just
spawned on the slate a couple nights ago and we moved it to other tank
with methylene blue. They look like black to me. lol A very few
white eggs. Ok, where can I see a picture of what fertilized eggs
really look like? I'd like to have a look. I am very inexperienced.
If you do remove th eggs....there are SO many problems to solve...ie
how are you going to feed those tiny little fish? Even if the fish
hatched without getting fungus they will soon die without the parents
looking after them.
It is said in some books that you can raise these fish without
parents, but I've found without parents it's impossible.
With the parent's there can be a major success.
Please send an email with any questions as I don't always have time
to check DejaNews.

ok ok ok forget what I said yesterday. lol The eggs have just
hatched!!! woohoo Those cute tiny wiggling things. BUT if I didn't
know they were eggs to start with, I'd think they were bugs or
something and would freak out! (I hate bugs!!!) My gosh, I have a
BIG job ahead of me now! Might have a trillion of questions soon.
Not really. Maybe a dozen. ;o)
And I forgot to mention that I have a black slate they are on. Maybe
that's why they look black to me. duh
And yes, I've read enough information on how to raise baby fry,
especially changing water every day, feeding them with stained yolk
and then baby brine shrimp (after they are free swimming), culling
them later (sob sob), etc. But this is my first time, tho. Half of
them will die, I know. This will be a part I'd hate to watch. :o(
I am planning on letting my breeding angelfish raise other spawn by
themselves. I only have these two angelfish and two young corydoras
in 55 gal tank anyway. The parents were mad at me after the eggs were
removed from them by going to their corner when I approached. They
actually snubbed me. That really made me feel bad. lol
The male is marble and female is wild (normal kind)
