While rearing fry..

My angels are kamikaze maniacs!! Bugger jumped OUT of the tank at me.. I have never seen that before.. Dove up and out and landed on the other side of some emergent plants...

I moved them back into the 250 from a 50G as I had forgotten how terrible they were when with fry...

Aside from removing the babies if there a way to make them less freaky?

Its such a heavy planted tank and yet kitty corner hands in there they will come over to bite my hand and arm...

Then I scream like a big baby..and its embarrassing,,,

Advice appreciated... as much as my BF thinks its very funny...

Not too many youtube tags are used right now, that'd be a worth while one. Film it. I'd find that hilarious too quite frankly :)

My baby removing technique without getting bitten:

1. I put in a large net (I only have large ones) between the parents and the eggs.
2. I put my hand in and get the eggs

If the parents try to come close, I move the net in my other hand to scare them off.
I also sometimes cover my hand with the net as I go to grab the eggs.

My Angelfish mom is very aggressive during and after spawning. She once took out half of the male's tail. No idea how. Its been more than a month now and he almost has his tail back (superveil takes longer to grow I guess).

Anyways, try the net idea next time :)
hopefully it helps
