    Hello everyone!

    I have a confirmed male and female pair of Spawning pair of Freshwater Angels. THey have laid over 10 batches but I have had luck with only 1...and even then the babies died.

    Day before yesterday (saturday) They laid eggs. I waited until day two (yesterday) to remove the remaining eggs( none white as i knocked all the white ones off) and place them in a soda bottle with the top cut off.

    I poked holes in the bottle so water could flow through, and placed it in the tank--with the water from the same tank-- they were laid in. So nothing was changed, i just moved them into a bottle.

    I kept an eye on them, and a few of them had sprouted tails. I got up this morning and they had all turned white. Any explanations? Thanks guys!

    That would be my guess as well. Eggs need a good amount of oxygen and water flow as they actually have a pretty high metabolic output when the larvae are developing and can build waste pretty quickly. If you want to raise them in a separated container like that I would recommend adding an airline and stone to increase O2 and water flow

    Yes, Angel fish eggs need water movement over them so. I use to add some Methylene Blue to my Angel eggs. After a few spawns I just left the parents to raise the babys. Takes them a few spawns to get it right.

    Do the above, and start some brine shrimp eggs for hatching when you see the pair grooming the egg laying site.

    clean a surface for them or remove the previous breeding sites , it could be infection ? have you tried a 50,50 water change ? try and reduce the ph and increase the temperature
