Crabby angelfish

My angelfish pair have tried to spawn for the second time in my community tank.  None of the eggs were viable, thinking it could be due to my high pH and hard water. The male has now started harassing the female horribly this morning after this second batch went completely bad.  They've always got along, so will he eventually accept her again?  I'm not actually trying to breed them, but should I try to change the tank conditions so the eggs have a better chance and they get to be parents?

Given time, they will probably work it out - both getting along and breeding. If you want them to breed, you could put in a breeding slate or some other almost vertical flat surface.

I have a pair that have tried to lay eggs several times, but they just can't seem to make them stick. I think they will eventually get it right.

Good luck!

Yes, raising the fry is a commitment. First you have to get the tanks, heaters, lights, filters, brine shrimp hatchery. Then water changes every day, hatching brine shrimp, and feeding twice a day (or more). Right now I have two batches of fry - about 150 each. They are fun, but a lot of work.
