Angelfish will aggressively defend their spawn, but there is almost a zero chance any fry will survive in a community tank. In fact, the angelfish will probably eat their eggs so other predators don't get the nutrition.
so should i put the eggs in a seprate tank
Goldfish should not be with angel fish in the same tank they have different needs one is cold water and one is tropical
Angelfish are very delicate, and difficult to breed. Fortunately, you're most of the way there. Do you know if the eggs have been fertilized? If they have, just move the eggs on whatever driftwood or slate or whatever they were laid on to a separate tank. My cousin has been trying for months to breed angelfish, with limited success, so I've had the benefit of hearing about this. Best of luck to you!
The most important thing at the moment is finding the fish proper homes they do not belong together at all
While I agree with you, Yellow, I was attempting to answer the question asked... While I agree that goldfish do not belong in a community tank, due to their behavior and ammonia production rates, that was not the information this person was looking for. He DID also mention, in his OP, that he was planning to get rid of the goldfish...
The eggs were gone in the morning. I was disappointing. But now I know for next time, thank you so much.
great advise, glad someone actually knows what there on about
Dont stress, this happens and will from time to time. The longer a pair are together, the better chance they have of raising fry successfully. Oh and laying more eggs.
