That is sad when the parents eat them. I always enjoyed watching the parents tend their familys.

it is sad but nature is nature. there were 2 - 3 times more fry but every time i got up in the morning there would be more missing. i kept them together for as long as i could to see if motherly instinct would show but gave up when more than half had been eaten

When I was breeding Angel Fish for sale, I removed the eggs as soon as the parents were finished. It was the best way to get large numbers of fry, but not as much fun as letting the parents raise them.

Just a note on angels eating their young. I realize they do this however they also suck them all up when they are threatened. Whenever I walk near my tank when they have babies the parents run around like crazy and gather them all up in their mouth. Then about 2 mins later when they are used to me again they spit them all out in a big cloud of fry.

Angel Fish sucking all of the fry into their mouths?? What kind of Angel Fish did you say yours were?
