Basic Guide to Spawn Angelfish Successfully


Description: want to spawn angelfish successfully? This guide will help you breeding freshwater angelfish at home.

Breeding angelfish is a challenge for many fish owners. You may know how to spawn angelfish, but they are known for aggressive behaviors, especially between non-bonded fish. You need good preparation before breeding the fish to create successful spawns.



Tank Requirement to Spawn Angelfish
Angelfish must be spawned in a breeding tank, with water condition that mimics their natural habitats. They need a water temperature of 26 degrees Celsius (78 degrees Fahrenheit), with a pH level of 6.7. However, if a pair of fish doesn't breed after several days, you can increase the temperature to 27 degrees Celsius (around 80 degrees Fahrenheit).

Equip the breeding tank with an air pump and filter. Add several aquatic plants and perhaps a simple set of slate rock (don’t place gravel or pebbles at the bottom). Add an aquarium bubbler. When the breeding is successful, the female fish will lay her eggs on a piece of plant or this slate.



Preparing Angelfish for Spawning
Angelfish are aggressive, but they can be friendly once they bond with other fish mates in the aquarium. The same principle applies on the breeding process. You cannot place random male and female in a breeding tank, since they may attack each other. The only fish you can breed are the ones that have formed a bond for at least one year.

If you plan to spawn angelfish, buy a sizeable tank (at least 60 gallons). Place around six to eight angelfish, with equal numbers of males and females. These numbers are your best bet to create a bond between male and female fish. Provide the required water temperature, with enough aquatic plants, gravel, driftwood, or slate rock to keep them happy.

When they turn one year old, pay attention to the male and female fish. See which one of them that often swim close to each other. If a male and female show such closeness, they are your best bet to spawn.



What to Do after Female Fish Lays Egg
If everything goes smoothly, a female angelfish will lay small, grain-like eggs. Pay attention to where she puts them. Angelfish sometimes eat their eggs, but other times, they only get closer to clean them. To clear the confusion, place the aquarium bubbler under the egg location, so the air bubbles clean the eggs.

Angelfish eggs hatch in three days, and you can return the parents after that. The fry consumes the yolk for about five days, before they are ready to eat micro worms or baby brine shrimp. Move them to different tank after three months.

Knowing how to spawn angelfish will give you high success rate in breeding these beautiful fish. Try these steps if you plan to keep more fish or trade them.
