Breeding Angelfish

We started breeding Angelfish over 30 years ago, and formed our new company, AngelfishUSA in 2007.  Although, there are many new methods that are successful in the breeding of angelfish, many of them are just the same basic techniques with a little enhancement.  While we have found that some of the newer type techniques work well, we seem to always revert to our original way of breeding angels.  In this section we will let you know how we breed angels and what is successful for us. We still breed our angelfish with love and care.  Although we are expanding and getting much larger very quickly, we will never just raise fish that we are not proud of.  When we decided to get back into the breeding of angelfish, we did so because we found there were very limited quality angelfish available in the marketplace.  We still consider the Angelfish as being the "King of the Aquarium", although it seems that Discus have taken that proud position.  Angelfish that are healthy, and kept happy are one of the most beautiful tropical fish that you can own.

First, you need a Breeding Pair of Angelfish

Breeding pairs.... There are 2 ways to obtain a breeding pair of Angelfish. You can purchase a "proven pair" (we do sell young proven pairs occasionally). In this manner you will have an instant pair of angelfish. The preferred way is to start out with a group of young fish. They can be anywhere from small to medium sized. Feed them well, keep their water clean, keep them in a large enough tank (we use 55 gallon tanks or larger ), and wait. Usually when they are 8 to 10 months old they will start to pair off. They will become very territorial as they approach breeding age and when you see 2 fish keeping the rest of the bunch away from them, you have a pair. When the fish are 6 months of age we put slate in the tank for them to lay their eggs on. There are many different materials you can use, but we prefer the "old method" of slate.

Preparing your Pair

Once you know you have a pair, it's time to get their new home ready. The pair needs to be kept in their own tank. A minimum of 20 gallons (the tall type) per pair. The tank should not have anything in it but your pair, a piece slate, and a sponge filter; and that's it! If you would like to put a plant in the tank, you may, but be sure it is in a pot of it's own as there should be no gravel in the tank at all! Just a tank, water and filter (and of course the pair of Angelfish).  We do not put any decorations in the tank because we hatch most of our eggs in a separate hatching jar and do not usually let our parents raise their own fry. If you are raising angelfish for fun, and you have a pair that will raise their own fry, it is a sight to see!
