Batch 8 - I think

Batch 8

I'd been worried about the two angels I put into their own tank - they seemed to be very grumpy and only coming up sporadically when I came by to feed them. That was until last week, when they laid their first batch of eggs on the back of the filter. The eggs didn't last though, and they went back to being grumpy. Then this afternoon I see they've laid yet another batch of eggs. This must be about their 8th batch of eggs all summer. If they keep laying eggs I guess they can't be too unhappy with life. It's a bit sad how cramped they look though - they're over half the total height of the tank!

The pic shows what I think is the male in front of the filter where they've laid their latest batch.

This time I'm going to turn off the filter just before the eggs are due to hatch (there's another filter in the corner - a bubble filter which isn't as likely to suck up the fry). That's even if the eggs get anywhere near hatching.
