The biggest prelobm with angelfish fry surviving is keeping the water and whatever they are in CLEAN! Unless the parents are exceptional in taking care of the eggs, many will fungus and not be viable. Any crud on the bottom of their tank/pond will harbor bacteria and fry are very susceptible to infections and life threatening deformities in their first week to ten days. If you are seeing the eggs, the best thing to do is to remove them and incubate them in a clean small aquarium indoors. Then you can control all of the variables. You will be able to keep it clean, feed them properly when they hatch and your hatch rate should go way up.If you don't see the eggs, there is not much you can do. The other fish may be eating them too. You didn't say what the other fish are, but most will eat whatever is available in a pond environment.Feel free to email me if you have more questions.Good luck!26 years of keeping and spawning many different species of tropical fish and cichlids. 24 tanks up and running at present. Mostly cichlids and scavengers right now. I have worked in both the retail and wholesale tropical fish business.The Greatest Enemy of Truth is not the deliberate lie; Rather it is all those things we know to be true that are not. fish avatar
Wow, this is an amazing photo. The tilt of the fish and the lighting and background are really great. It's too bad it's so grainy. fish avatar
Incredibly beautiful. You could sell the picture rights. fish avatar
