    Hi I am Beth, aka angelfishmomma. I accidentally have gotten into angelfish breeding, and now looking for other fish enthusists to share the exciting times with. Currently, I have 7 dime size baby angelfish that have survived. I have been keeping angels for about 2.5 yrs now and have a beautiful 32 gal hex tank with a cascade canister pump. My hatch tank is a cheap Top Fin 10 gal with the top fin filter that came with it. (Was bought cheap as I was not aware that I had a male and female angel at the time. I now can identify them!!) I also use sponge filteration with this tank and breeders net around the pump intake when the babies were very small. Was bought cheap as I was not aware that I had a male and female angel at the time. (I now can identify them!!) Anyway look forward to getting to know you all. I also have a 29 tall tropical tank with a penguin biowheel filter on it that my kids enjoy.

    Welcome Beth I also love angels and breed them. My juvies go in a 250gal indoor pond. 10 gal is kind of small for growing angels. I suggest at least a 20H. I never go below a 29 for angel fry.

    Thanks everyone.

    I have since moved all babies into a 29 tall tank. Unfortunately, I lost a few of my son's tetras, but made then fit into the 10g much better and gave my surviving angel fry the room they need to grow.

    Congrats, and welcome. I breed angels as well. the 29g is a good choice for a grow out tank for angels, their fins will grow nicely.

    I fed mine, BBS,rotifers and green water then added diced up bloodworms into the mix about the 6 week mark. Their fins and coloration not to mention size were just awesome. I cant keep them in stock anymore.
