    Default Fluval Profile 1200, breeding pair of angels, plecos and corys

    Tank: Fluval Profile 1200, 85g
    Filter: Fx6
    Got my equipment from fellow members here.



    Fish:
    5 longfin Corys
    4 Albino plecos from Velderton
    Breeding Pair of orange head koi from Rick at Canadian Aquafarm




    Progress so far:
    -Plecos have just laid eggs.
    -Corys laid multiple clusters of eggs on the glass.



    Will post an update once the angels lay eggs.

    Thanks to Chrisphung, Rick, Velderton, and Kolewolf for the hookups.

    I love it. The tall tank is perfect for those veil angels! I hope they spawn soon for you.

    2nd update

    I was worried that the FX6 was causing too much of a current in the tank for the angelfish to breed. But I noticed that the flow rate was drastically reduced because of the sponge filter on the intake being clogged with waste and java moss. So it worked it out.

    After lots of water changes and giving them a variety of foods (NLS flakes, tetra color bits, bug bites and Hikari Vibra bites) they have finally spawned!

    I'm anticipating the worst-case scenario where they eat the eggs but if they hatch I have baby brine shrimp eggs ready to go.

    Excited to observe and go through the process of raising the fry.

    3rd update:

    After 2-3 days after the angelfish eggs spawned, they were gone. I will continue to see if they can successfully pull off raising their fry in this community environment for a couple of months. If not I might separate them or use a spawning jar and breeding cone.



    Meanwhile, I have been battling black beard algae on my plants. I did some google searching and found out that Seachem excel was a common treatment. I have been dosing it daily and it started turning red and withering away.



    Plecos have hatched but did not stay alive long. I noticed the female angelfish had an appetite for them . I'm thinking that once my plants grow in they will have more cover and a better chance to survive. To help speed up the growth of my plants I use Seachem flourish advance daily and NilocG Aquatics Thrive weekly. I noticed all my plant shooting runners soon after.

    A Crosscheilus reticulatus (Silver Flying Fox) will eradicate your BBA. I find it a safer alternative to Flourish Excel/Metricide 14.

    JMHO.

    Thanks for the suggestion Stuart. I didnt want to risk getting a fish that might eat the angelfish eggs/fry.
