End of waiting....!


Just an update on my gigantic angels, at last the female of the pair laid around 50 translucent eggs....! Woooohoooo....! I'm sorry that i'm stuck with the fish topics for a while because i was just worried about my pair of angels.... Now the wait is over ha-ha....!


Finally i don't need to worry anymore....! I was just worried that the eggs will not be deposited properly on anything that they will decide to stick them on to.... It makes me happy and proud watching them guarding their small territory inside the tank around their new nest....


Hey, you know why my angels are gigantic....? For those who also have angels in their tanks, actually i give them an extra-boost of protein by feeding then bits of frozen minced beef once a week....! That's my cheat he-he....!


I have to move a school of Neon Tetras to another tank too because they make the mother angel nervous and restless that she sometimes turn her aggressions to the male angel mistaken him for an intruder inside their territory....


Bilib din ako sa tatay angel kasi everytime na kakagatin sya ng nanay angel ay binibigay nya ang right side ng body nya para kagatin nito....! Parang sinasabi nyang " heto and right side ko darling, dyan mo na lang ibuntong ang galit mo " ha-ha....! Tuloy ay nagka-scars ang right eye nya, pero alam ko temporary lang naman yun kasi may protective tissue naman sila na naka-coating sa mata nila....


At the moment ay 50 tiny eggs that looks more like the butterfly's eggs ang idinikit nila sa glass sa may back side ng aquarium kasi first time parent lang sila, pero later on sa next batch of laying ay baka madami na.... I'm not sure when did the laying occurred kasi hindi ko masyadong na-check kagabi, it was just today when i look for one of the little lightnings (neon tetras) that i've notice something sticking on the surface of the glass....!


I almost jump in too much excitement when i've realised that those were eggs ha-ha....! Straight away i marked the calendar because this is actually my first experience with a breeding pair of angels so i'm thnking of taking datas of the length of hatching and the growth and feeding behaviours of the fries....


I don't know how are they going to feed their fries but if it is similar to the Discuses, they will also shed their old layers of skin and that will be eaten by their babies as food for the first 2 - 3 weeks.... Astig di ba....?!


This is what i always tell my friends about keeping a fish tank, it's actually full of fun and excitements....! Now, i'll be busy anticipating something that i haven't seen before which are baby angels ha-ha....! Isn't that exciting....?!


Anyways, i have to stop here for the time being kasi ililipat ko lang muna ang mga little lightnings sa kabilang tank at nagkakagulo na sila sa loob ngayon dahil sa over-protective nanay angel see yous later....!

hi pepe, we also have a pair of angel fish here in r offys, and d female also laid lots of eggs (indeed like d butterfly eggs).

She did dat already for abt 3 x already. However, d next morning, all d eggs always disppear! D pair has d whole tank for themselves nman! mmnnnn :-(

Pepe said...

I think there's only one reason to that Josh, baka unfertile ang mga eggs kaya kinain na lang ng pair.... Baka kasi pareho silang females.... Ang mga eggs kasi ng females ay dapat na i-fertilise ng males after na natapos na ang mga itong idikit ng females sa ano mang surface.... I hope i've answered your question.... Thanks sa comments Josh....! =D

JOSH said...

OHHHH.... hmmmnn errr, how can i differentiate nga a female from male??? Actually, my angels r 3 al in all, but two of them seem to pair & i feel sorry for d one left behind because they kept on picking on it (like biting it or something). Kaya i have put d bullied angel to another tank w/ my mollies (w/c r so proliferate live bearers!) :)

Pepe said...

Josh, actually the bullying thingy was just a normal territorial behavior of a breeding pair.... So your response to move the bullied angel was the right thing to do, but now you have to give him or her a company also pwera pa dun sa mga mollies.... Baby angels will do.... Normally the males are bigger and well rounded than the females.... When protecting territories, females tends to bite a lot than males....!
