~30x Angelfish fry (Pterophyllum scalare) RIP

2009. Adult angelfish pair laid around 30 eggs on an Anubis leaf in a 50 litre community tank. Pair became aggressive to other tank makes, pinning them in a far corner of the tank. In an attempt to diffuse the situation, the parents, eggs and leaf were moved to a new 20 litre tank. Approximately 10 minutes later the adult angelfish fish ate all the eggs. Failure to provide adequate housing. Failure to manage breeding behaviour.
