    I have breed many angelfish.
    If this is the first spawn then most likely they will be eaten by next morning. It takes some just a couple of spawns to know how to raise the fry and other never learn and you have to remove the eggs and put in a bare bottom 10 gallon with a air stone. Just a little water movement. Do not let them touch the bottom and they will not make it to swimmers.
    This is easy to do if you put in a spawn slate and they spawned onto it if not just let nature take it coarse as they will spawn again within 3 weeks. Watch for fighting now as the female will think the male ate them and start attaching the other fish. This is normal but it could be worse. Have places for them to hide and rest from the other fish.
    These fish are the only fish in the spawn tank right?
