How to Breed Angelfish

Feeding and caring for the Angelfish fry

4 to 5 days after your eggs hatch the wigglers will start to swim. They do not look like angels at this point. They look more like little tiny guppy babies. This is the point that they need to be fed. They will need baby brine shrimp 3 times a day to stay strong and survive. (We will explain how to make a brine shrimp hatchery later on). We give the babies their first feeding as soon as they are free swimming in their first home, the jar. Most breeders will move their fry to larger quarters at this point and then start to feed, but this is what works for us and we continue to have great success. We do move the babies to a small tank (usually either a 5 gallon or 10 gallon tank) 24 hours after they hatch. We prefer to use a small tank so that they can easily find the food at feeding time. Each time we feed them their baby brine shrimp we will siphon off the bottom of their tank 2 hours later so that the uneaten food does not spoil the water. We still do a 50% daily water change. We can usually keep the spawn in these small tanks for about 3 weeks depending on the size of the spawn and their growth rate. After 2-3 weeks we move them again to a larger tank. Either a 20 gallon (this time the long type) or a 40 gallon breeder tank. We prefer to use the 20 gallon tank, as once again they can find their food much easier.

If we used a 20 gallon tank we will do one more move (to a 40 gallon or larger tank) at 4-5 weeks of age. Daily water changes are still a must at this point. We also start to introduce crushed flake food once they are almost 4 weeks old. Very little at first, and then more each time and less baby brine shrimp. At 6 weeks they are approaching dime size that's the size of their bodies with fins and we slow down the water changes. Now every 2 to 3 days. We do this because they will be going to their new homes shortly, and we must assume that the new owners will not change water every day. This acclimates the fish fairly quickly to water conditions that they will be getting from their new home. This makes our angelfish much easier to acclimate and adjust to their new surroundings! At dime size they are ready for us to sell. We now will hand pick the best 10% of the spawn to keep and raise for our future breeders. We choose for body shape, straight fins and color. This way we are assured to have the best breeding stock available year after year. This will usually result in about 50 to 100 babies and we will do the same thing once they hit quarter size (our medium selling size). At quarter size we are sure which ones we want to keep for our future breeders.
