A Young Pair of Freshwater Angelfish
These two Angelfish spawned a few weeks before this picture was taken, and they are getting ready to spawn again. In this picture they're "cleaning a spot" on the siphon tube that drains water into the the filter. The fish on the left is the male Leopard Veiltail Angel, and the fish on the right is a female Gold Veiltail Angel. These Angelfish are two color varieties of the same species.
The Angel Fish Spawning.
Leopold the large male Leopard Veiltail Angelfish is on the left in the picture just above. Marilyn, his mate, is on the right, and you can see her breeding tube on the lower part of her abdomen. She has just laid some eggs on the filter tube, and Leopold is now fertilizing the eggs. But some of the eggs did not adhere and are loose in the water above Marilyn.

In the video, shown just above, the same pair of Angelfish are spawning in Tom's 55-gallon Angelfish Aquarium.
Hi Tom, Hi Nevin,
My name is Jackie from Labrador City, NL, Canada. I'm a big fan of you guys and your radio show. Talked to you Tom back in your May 20th show. I haven't had the pleasure yet of talking to Nevin. Hopefully in the near future.
I presently have two angel fish spawn and two Aeneus Corydoras spawn (thanks to listening many times to the interviews with Steve Corandan and Robert in New Jersey). I've weaned all of my spawn off of the Baby Brine Shrimp, but was wondering if there is a recommended length of time they should have been fed them. Hope to hear your comment on a future show.
Here is a picture of my first angel fish spawn. Always looking for food I'm so proud!!!!
Yours truly, Jackie.
Reply. Hi Jackie, WOWWWWWEEE !! What a fabulous tank full of young angelfish !!!!!!!! I'll bet Steve Corandan is be very very proud of you and your young angelfish. Congratulations !!!!!!!!
I remember when you called the show, you said your angels spawned in an aquarium with other fish and you did not remove the eggs. That is what Tom is trying to do, but has not succeeded. Whatever you did really worked out.
I don't think there is a specific length of TIME to feed young angels baby brine shrimp. Fish grow at differing rates depending on water temp, water quality, food quality, and the amount of food plus many other factors.
Nevin and I raised many angels and tried to get the babies to eat other foods as soon as possible and then to wean them off baby brine shrimp as soon as possible.
Please call the show tomorrow and give us all some hints on breeding and raising wonderful angelfish like yours. In the meantime ... CONGRATULATIONS !!!
The fish, shown just above, is a Saltwater Angelfish. The comments in
