Not a combination I've tried but I would expect the Angels to pick the fry off.

Have a look at <"ScotCat: My Breeding Experience">.

i agree only a small amount of cunning sneaky fry will avoid the mouths of your angels

Hallo!I had mine with angels, and they did spawn, but I removed the male in his cave with his eggs to another tank when I noticed he was sitting. I used the water from the tank he was in to set up his own private tank and robbed some filter media and popped it in a micron mesh tube with an air stone in it.....cos I was afraid that when the fry hatched out that they might get sucked up the filter strainer.....worked really well.
I now have two males and three females in a 520 litre tank with guppies.......so I am hopeing that I will just be able to let them get on with it.....but so far they are on strike!!!.......it's weird how once they start spawning....its hard to stop them.....then for no apparent reason they just stop! I find it confusing because evryone has different ideas on what the ideal temp is for them....although most people seem to aggree that daily water changes can make them want to spawn.
