I have hatched many angelfish but now I want them to hatch because I have some where they can go. Both pairs are laying every two to three weeks. Ideas welcome. I have platinum Pearlscale that will soon be ready to breed and some are pairing off already.so I would like to be more consistent.

What are you asking for help on? You say you have hatched angels many times… but have you successfully raised them up to maturity?

My son bred and raised Koi Angels a couple years ago. Here is a video series we posted, going step-by-step…

@Fish Folk is right. Separate the eggs and the fish so that the fish cannot eat the eggs. The angels may eventually learn not to eat the eggs, but there is no good reason to wait for them to learn. 

I have pulled angelfish eggs (on a filter tube once and once on a plant leaf) and put them in a 5-gallon bucket with a heater and an air stone. Works fine. One of the reasons for using a slate like yours is that it is easy to move.

While waiting for the eggs to hatch, I got a tank ready. After hatching, I transferred the wigglers from the bucket to the tank using a turkey baster (great tool for fry-raising).

Let's go @Brandon p!

@Fish Folk the videos where good. I guess that since I have never had and issue with the parents eat eggs or young or at least now enough to notice. 
 

next time I’m going to keep this journal going and document. The double blacks should be next to lay.  Hope fully soon.

Good luck! Hope you've got a lot of grow-out tank space ready in advance.

Here were our Koi Angels from one hatch just before we sold them all...

I do I a few a 55 gallons that I can use. An old breed used them for a very long time/25 years with the tanks I got but the glass is cloudy. I have just about run out of room for tanks. I could just rearrange the room and and make so more space.

Just beware that silicone has a limited lifetime . . . and 55 gallons spilled out on any floor is a LOT more water than you'd think!
