how long does it take for eggs to hatch? my angelfish has layed over hundreds what do i need to do now
it takes 3 to 4 days for the eggs to hatch. there are to ways to hatch them. the first one you can leave the eggs in with the parents, however, stress can cause them to eat the fry. if you choose this method make sure you dont run up or suddenly pop out in front of your tank. this will stress any fish espeacilly ones gaurding their young. the second would be to take the parents out of their current tank and put them in a seperate tank. i would go with the first method, it is more natural, but do what you like. when the fry hatch they will feed on their yoke sac for about a week. DO NOT feed until after about five or six days. you will cloud the water shoot the amonia and nitrites way up and probly kill the fry. after about a week you can start feeding the fry. the fry will start out eating small foods like brine shrimp. i suggest getting hikari first bites.
hope this helps
thanks so very much ,they seem to be doing pretty good so far
well i woude :
Thankyou so much!
I was wondering do White Cloud 24 KT Gold Fish lay eggs or have live birth babies?
how can you tell when the eggs are bad,what color should the be?
Fertile eggs remain translucent, and infertile eggs develop an opaque white fungus. Fish eggs do not hatch like chicken or reptile eggs. Instead, they just start to grow. Angelfish eggs have a temporary adhesive which allows the parents to move them from one place to another.
Viable eggs will start to wiggle in a few days, then a black dot appears on one side, and a short little hair protrudes out the other. These eventually become a pair of eyes and a tail. As the yolk sac is consumed, both appendages become more developed, and the fry are free swimming. They can take food only after the yolk sac is fully consumed. It takes a few weeks before the fry start to look anything like angelfish.
it takes 3 days
if they turn brownish color, does that mean they are not vile or were not fertilized?
how can I feed the parents without feeding the fry if they are in the same tank?
will the parents eat the fry onced they have grown?
how can I feed the parents without feeding the fry
Only if they are moved to a different tank or if
they they are stressed
I have 2 angelfish a female and a male they love to eat and lay eggs they always lay eggs on the side or in plants or the fake ones my female angle fish is usually colored back and white the male is silver it takes a long time for them to get through their stages my angle fish is about 3 years old my male angle fish is starting to get blue that's when they are about to have babies if the babies might get sucked up in the air bubble thing put a sock on it my female has red eyes and my male has green eyes They love furniture when they bump each other that means they want to have babies or they want to kiss I hope this helps a lot !!!
