Hi BottomDweller and a very warm welcome to the site.

You can leave the eggs and fry in the tank with their parents and it is a joy to watch them care for them. Some parents will eat them but most wont. But you will have to rehouse them when they start to grow and start pestering there parents.

How many Angels do you have at the moment.

If you want to know the sex of those you have, you can post a few clear pictures on the site and I'll sex them for you. Or you can look at my topic 'How to sex an Anglefish'

http://www.uk-angelfishforum.org.uk/t417-how-to-sex-your-angelfish

Have fun and please keep us all inform of your progress.

I currently have 12 angels (i know it's overstocked) but i don't have any pairs yet.I don't know how old they are but their body is only 2-4cm in height (without fins).I know about how to tell their gender but since they aren't paired up i cant tell.If i have any fry and i leave them with the parents till they grow, will the parents lay more eggs?

When the fry are big enougth to leave there parents you will need at least a 3ft tank to house them in.

When Rob (Pterophyllum) comes on he will be able to give you better adsvise on the size of tanks than me.

I beleave there is a post on here that tells you how to upload pictures, I'll forward it on when I come across it.

Sorry, I don't know how to add photos from a phone. By default the when you log on on a phone you get a mobile friendly version of the site, which because I'm use to using the PC version I don't like. You can select to use the PC version on your phone, and then those buttons are available to you, but I can't remember quite how. The PC version of the site, looks quite small on a phone, but is useable.

With regard to raising young, if you want to breed, you need more than one tank. The young can stay with the parents for about a month after they become free swimming, but after that it gets too crowded and the youngsters annoy their parents by nibbling at them. A 3ft, 20 gallon tank would probably be big enough to raise about 100 youngsters to saleable size, but give them more space and they'd grow more rapidly. Finally, if you've bred them and raised them, chances are you will want to keep at least a couple, so realistically, if you want to get into breeding you'll need at least 3 tanks. One to raise fry in, one for a breeding pair, and one to keep the adults in when they're not breeding.
