My 2 Angels have been showing signs of breeding, but then the next day they are fighting constantly. Is this normal? I haven't declared if I have a male or Female yet. Thanks!

Hmmm they may be pairing up. Another sign of breeding is if you see them guarding an area of the tank they are in. I had a pair of gold angels breed every four weeks and it was hectic! Do you have any other tank mates in with them? What size tank is this? If you want them to spawn then do regular water changes, raise the temperature a bit and feed them a variety of meaty food such as shredded shrimp, bloodworms etc.

However you could just have two males or two females that are fighting. Time will tell!

What kind of fighting? When pairing, angels sometimes lock jaws and mouth wrestle.

They aren't lip locking they are like Nipping at each other. They are guarding a corner of the tank but they haven't done any breeding yet. They are in a 45 gallon. Tank mates are 2 Laetacara Dorsigers, 1 Bolivian Ram, 1 Rubber Lip Pleco, 2 Synodontis Eupterus, 1 Yoyo loach, 2 Red Velvet Sword Tails. They usually chase off my Laetacara Dorsigers.

If they are breeding and you want to have fry then i suggest a divider of some sort or take the other fish out if not those eggs will get eaten by the tank mates!

I haven't seen their genital pappila yet so i'm guessing they arent close to breeding yet.

Yes although i have seen a case where there are two females trying to breed...in the end they just eat all the eggs.

I hope you get fry, numbers! That would be so nice! You should write up about it as an experience and include pics and vids of the angelfish and their eggs etc!
