    Hey everyone, I am new to this site :)

    I need some help, we have had 4 angels for roughly three years and have never known the sex of them, then last week our light fused and we had to order a new one, so after a week in darkness for our little fishies, we fitted the light and to our surprise we noticed this furry looking thing on our artificial plants, when we looked closer its actually little angel babies....
    Now, what do we do??

    We have a 125 L tank and have 4 angels, 2 clown loaches and one ram.. and he seems to be going for the babies..

    I have switched the light back off... but i need help:-/... thanks in advance :)

    First google "raising angelfish"!!

    I've had angels spawn, but they mostly ate their eggs. Probably from the stress of other fish in the tank. I've heard they can be good parents but mine never were. If yours are hatched, I'd let them be and see how the parents do, they made it this far....

    At least once I was able to get the eggs into a small aquarium with just an airstone and they hatched. Frequent water changes. They're fed baby fish food 2x a day or more. Newly hatched brine, etc.
