    Very nice! Thanks for sharing those videos. I bred angels a long time ago, and this really brings back memories. Like a lot of people, I could never get reliable parents and ended up hatching the eggs in a separate container almost exclusively. I think your pair's experience in a community tank most likely instilled the parenting instinct in them. A theory at least.
    And you display is awesome as well.

    I was lucky. So far all 3 pairs are good parents. I they learned their lesson laying eggs in my big tank. Because of that they take extra care of their young.

    Yes. As soon as they start out growing my 29G breeder I will have to start selling them off. I will keep a few in my big tank.
