First Leopoldi angel spawn
« on: January 16, 2022, 04:54:59 pm »
Before I left to get the frogbit I was checking out the Leopoldi angels in their 125… they had a small cluster of eggs on the filter intake tube!!! |^| ….FINALLY!!! …I don’t think they'll be successful with this first span, because I moved my hand in near the are of the eggs and they backed off rather than attack me…we’ll see what happens though…

I got them as young juries and I’ve had them about a year…

What a big deal for you, Ron.  I wish you all the luck in the world with this pair.
Always move forward. Never look back.

Thanks… I’ve got my fingers crossed…I’ve had scalari spawns and raised a bunch…but this is totally new for me with the Leopoldi…

That's what I would do.  I think she has a couple left and won't be making more until Spring.  I might be mistaken but I think that's what she told me.  I know for sure that she still has a couple of gnome cones.  They're cool if you have a quirky nature like I have.

Don't despair if this batch doesn't make it.  They're still young and stupid.  They'll spawn again.

I was wrong….all the eggs weren’t wrong….I was noticing that the parents-to-be were still hanging around the intake tube and looked closer and there were still a few eggs almost on the back side…perhaps in the dark of night the cories or SAEs had gotten to most of the eggs, so I left a light on last night and they’re still there this morning…

I may have not been giving the pair their just due…

The fry are free-swimming this morning!…there are 12-14 still alive….not a big angel brood by any means, but these have turned out to be decent first time parents.

Most ove the other fish one held to the opposite 1/2 of the tank!! |^|

Thanks, Willie....I don't have any way to raise them right now, though.
