Late last year we put in a lot of effort into rearing the bellus angelfish. The full write up can be found here - https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/bellus-angelfish-breeding-project.319243/. I'll share the details here for everyone to enjoy.
Here's a video of the spawn.
This clip shows how the infertile eggs sink, while the fertilized eggs float
Here's an egg hatching
Which resulted in a nice crop of prolarvae.
We had a massive number of larvae survive to about day 10
By day 28, we had 20 larvae past flexion.
Around day 40, we had 6 left.
Then finally, day 87 we have little bellus angelfish!
