If they have intention of breeding the genital papilla should drop
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!
Eating the eggs is usually a sign of immature fish or they will also eat any non fertile or fungused eggs

Yes, I did notice them eating the white (unfertilised or fungus covered) eggs. But I have also had people tell me that because angelfish have been bred so much they have almost lost their natural instinct to look after their own fry so it will take 4-5 tries (as in spawns) and leaving them alone with their own eggs etc, not interferring so they know what to do!

Mine have paired and bred but eaten the eggs within 24 hours, this next drop will be their 4th attempt.

Mine were doing the exact same thing today, one minute they are fine the next my female is getting the Tina Turner treatment for poppa. They did not do this when they first paired, they just kinda never left eachothers side since they were dime size( different parents). I am just letting them be, I set up a tank with their native habitat and they started breeding the 12 days into being in the tank, they never layed eggs in their other tanks. The tank is a 40g tall with the paired angels and 6 green corydoras ( and some MTS but shhh)

I think he is feelin his mojo and she aint wanting none of it, but, domestic violence is a form of foreplay in the fish world, felines and canines as well.
