Cleaning a tank with baby fish, fry, can be a challenge.
Cleaning a tank can be difficult if baby fish are present, but doing so is critical to keeping your fish disease-free
You can leave the baby angelfish in the aquarium with the parents for up to three weeks. In most cases, adult angelfish will not eat their young, especially if they have already had a few litters. Keeping the fry with the parent pair will delay another reproductive cycle because the parents will be focused on the babies in the tank. The adults will eventually tire of the babies, but by then, it will be time to thin the herd, placing some of the fish in a different aquarium.
Living in a community tank is dangerous for baby angelfish. Most will get eaten by other fish, but there are a few things that you can do to increase their survival rates. As soon as you see eggs, place tall plants for the babies to hide and tall decor with tiny spaces where bigger fish cannot enter. You should offer different size brine shrimp several times a day to reduce the risk of the larger fish feeding on the baby angelfish.

The Molly fish is a livebearing tropical fish that can be fairly easy to breed. For many aquarists the biggest problem is not getting them to breed but stopping them from breeding. If left in a tank with other adult fish, the baby mollies will get eaten.Set up a tank with an undergravel filter or corner filter. A power filter could suck the tiny fry into the water intake tube. Place some Java moss or similar bedding plants into the tank. The Java moss will give the newly hatched fry a good place to hide. Keep the rest of the tank as bare as possible so you will be able to keep an eye on the baby fish.Aimee First you need to either mover the big fish to a different tank or the babies. You need to buy fish food for baby fish. You can find the special food at any pet store. Make sure the baby fish have things like plants, or ceramic castles and to hide in. If you plan on keeping the babies you're going to need a bigger tank. If not you need to get rid of the baby fish because 10-15 fish need more room then a 10 gallon tank. Good Luck ! (10/06/2004)By BrianI have about 4 to 8 baby fish, the other fish keep trying to eat them. I have a 25 gallon tank. If anyone who sees this knows what to do, Help! Please.Editor's Note: You need to either move the babies to a separate tank or get a divider for your original tank. Go to your local pet store and they should be able to help you. Good luck.By Sydney You don't need to remove baby fish from the main tank. From my experience, the babies aren't stupid. They will hide from the larger fish. All you need to do is make crevices in your gravel. Buy larger, polished rocks and place these, covering 85-90% of the designated crevice. Make sure the gap that is uncovered is large enough for the fry to swim under. As these fry hide they will wait for falling food to get close enough to their position and will snap out and grab a bite and return to their hiding place. The only way this will work is if you crush the food in a plastic bag or buy actual baby fish food. So I hope I helped! (02/15/2007)A few fish ignore their eggs or fry, and so can be bred in a species tank. White cloud minnows can breed this way, and many killifish will at least ignore the eggs. Baby killies are fair game, though. Guppies will also often ignore babies.
