Hello, I've been reading quite a bit about how to breed angels and  I've thought about giving it a try, but how do I know what to look for when I choose a breeding pair?
 
I'm not even sure how to tell the males from females at this point.
 
If I were to order from you, could I specify that I want a certain number of males and females? Any info you could pass along would be greatly appreciated.

Reply. We bred Angels for several years, and we've had many pairs, and produced many thousands of baby Angels.

After a couple of years we were able to look at Angels about 4" tall and pretty accurately spot the males and the females, as confirmed later, when they spawned.

In your reading you probably learned that, when Angels spawn, you can see a tube about the shape of a dull pencil lead that protrudes slightly from the female Angel.

The tube that protrudes from the male Angel is smaller in diameter, and it's quite easy to tell the male from the female with this method, when they spawn.

But it's not easy to tell males from females, except when a male and female are spawning. In fact it takes a couple of years of watching Angels breed.

Our late friend Richard Buttner spawned Angels for many years and said, "I can look at young Angels and usually tell which ones will be males and which ones will be females, but I can't explain how I do it, and it doesn't matter anyway, because they will sort it all out among themselves."

One small problem with this method is that sometimes two female Angels spawn without a male.

The tubes on these females are about the same size, and you can't use this method to tell the male from the female, because there is no male.

Breeding Angels
You said that you want to get a pair of Angels. The best way to do this is to get about 10 young Angels and put them in an aquarium with about 50-gallons of water. This aquarium should also be at least 18" tall.

Raise the Angels up together. When their bodies about about 1.5" to 2" in diameter, they will pair off, select a territory, and work together to chase the other fish out of their territory.

From a group of 10 Angels, we usually got three or even four pairs. But if you try to purchase a pair of mature Angels, often the pair bond will be lost when you move them.

So we recommend that you get small Angels about 3" tall. Raise them up together and allow them to choose their own mates.

Reply. Hello Nick. Thank you for your email and the picture of your Angelfish that just laid eggs. I added the arrow that points to their beige colored eggs on the gray ornament.
 
Click on the picture above, then click to maximize the new window and see a bigger picture. Where you can even expand that picture by clicking on the icon in the lower right corner of the the picture, making it easier to see the beige colored clumps of Angelfish eggs on the ornament near the tip of the black arrowhead.

Thanks again, Nick.
