It’s Always Something…

1 Dec

…and today it is something good. My Gold Angel and one of my Marble Angels have spawned in their community tank. I don’t have any tank space right now to move the parents or the eggs but when Angelfish pair off and start spawning they do it every few weeks.  Maybe sometime soon I can get a small tank ready and save some of the eggs.

I’m no Angelfish expert and there is tons of information about Angelfish breeding on other Internet sites.  On this blog I will continue to say that these things are key for ALL fish:

1. Clean water…decent filtration and make routine water changes of a MINIMUM of 20% every 2 weeks.  Try to do more than that.

2. Variety of foods….good dry food, some frozen shrimp, some algae pellets and shrimp pellets.

3. A naturalistic environment…some plants, some wood, with sand or gravel, rocks, even dead oak leaves, these all give the fish a sense of security.

Do these things and when you come home from work  your Angelfish will be laying eggs.  Simple.
