Default help with pair of angels

hi all
i've been trying to raise the fry of my angel fish but have no luck
i put them back in there own breeding tank again
the eggs only hatch if i use a mix of RO and tap
and the fry last a week free swimming
i tried frozen BBS i guess it wasn't a good idea(lfs idea)
i bought the sea monkeys and hopefully this try will work
i've read alot of info,but im looking for some first hand experience
here
o ya
since i moved the angelfish out of the community tank my female
krib has been in her cave for 2 days in a row and the male is standing by
looks like im gonna have krib fry soon

I always used water that was near the same as the tank they were laid in.(ph6 to 7) I would take the slate the eggs were laid on and put it in a two gallon container with a gentle air stone and a few drops of methylene blue to keep fungus away. When they hatched, I waited till they were free swimming then I moved them to ten gallon tanks with heater and sponge filter. I fed them freshly hatched brine shrimp that I kept going all the time in shrimp hatching bottles. As the fry got bigger I started them on crushed flakes or brand name fry food. The fry tanks were bare except for the sponge filter and it was easy to vacuum out debris. As the grew I moved them to grow out tanks. I raised many silvers , marbles, and DDBs that I sold. It was a lot of work, but I loved it and wish I could do it again.

It is fun to let the parents raise the fry. If you want maximum numbers of fry to survive to adulthood then they should be separated and raised in grow out tanks. I kept 4 to 6 homemade brine shrimp hatcheries going constantly to keep a steady supply of food for the fry of the various fish that I bred. I also raised white worms, cyclops, daphnia, ect for fry food. You need to keep a fresh supply in proportion to your need.
