    Is this normal?

    Post by zeketaz on Sat Jan 21, 2012 7:54 pm

    Sterling and Starburst are the youngest of my angels. Well had to move starburst out cause it was being overly bullied. Both angels are around 3-5ish months old and the other angels are easy over 1 yr old. Well a few weeks ago Shine had wanted to pair with Camo. In the last few days Sterling has been beating the crap out of Camo and Uno and showing off to Shine. It's like a love triangle to watch them as they try to strut their stuff. In the end Sterling wins the battle and goes back off with Shine and does this goofy victory shimmy.

    Well looking at the angels today I noticed Sterling has his itty bitty tube dropped! I didn't think at his age he should have pairing on his mind. Has to be the funniest thing I have ever seen on a fish. I also think Shine prefers the same sex fish as Snowy is female and she tried pairing with her and it looks like camo might be female and she tried pairing with it. Oi Vey

    Oh also is it normal for an angel to spawn what seems like every week to week and a half?

    Wow that's crazy.

    I still can't believe a 3-5ish month old is dropping his tube and displaying mating behavior

    Yup they are frequent spawners. every so often they stop spawning for a bit while the female makes new eggs.

    They can be fully developed by 6 months, usually 8 to 12 months. Of course he may be older and just stunted.
