 Hi,
 The  Peruvian  Scalares  (wild  caught)  have  bred  in  my  tank.  Yesterday  evening  spottted  a  pair  guarding  the  eggs  and  driving  away  anyone  who  came  within  a  feet  of  them!  Therefore,  removed  all  the  scalares  and  apistogramma  vijietas  in  another  tank.
 Lets  hope  the  eggs  hatch.  I  will  be  travelling  today  and  won't  be  back  until  Monday.  Till  then...
 P.S:  the  description  of  the  setup  etc  is  in  the  aquascape  section.
 The  angls  were  not  fed  on  live  food,  what  induced  the  spawning  is  a  water  change  (80%  RO)  this  sunday  bringing  the  Ph  down  from  6.9  to  6.1

 Did  not  surprise  me  at  all!
 With  a  biotope  setup  as  authentic  as  yours  the  angels  surely  felt  right  at  home  and  the  result  is  there  for  all  to  see.
 I  wonder  what  exactly  is  there  with  pH  drop  that  induces  spawning?Is  it  simply  mimicking  their  natural  habitat  or  something  else?  I  have  noticed  the  same  phenomenon  with  tankbred  discus  everytime  I  have  added  commercial  blackwater  extract/peat  plates/catappa  leaves,  the  fishes  go  on  a  spawning  frenzy.
 Same  can  be  noticed  with  a  slight  temperature  drop  too.The  other  day  on  TV  they  showcased  a  stingray  breeder  who  sprays  water  on  the  breeding  tanks  to  simulate  the  rainy  season  and  triggering  was  almost  instantaneous.
 Anyway,wish  you  all  the  best  with  the  fries!

 Updates  on  Scalare  Angel  breeding
 
 A  breeding  pair  was  identified  and  separated.  
 Tank  size:  18  X18X18  bar  bottom  glass  tank
 Filtration:  Power  head
 Breeding  equipment:  One  slate  resting  on  the  glass  at  60  degrees
 Light:  Low  
 Day  1  :  Eggs  are  laid  on  the  slate….impossible  to  count,
 Day  3:  Approximately  after  48-60  hours  from  the  eggs  are  laid,  they  hatch  (impossible  to  count  again   ).  The  parents  move  the  eggs  to  a  different  portion  of  the  tank.  The  fries  are  attached  to  the  tank  side  through  their  egg  sac.  One  can  see  the  tails  are  wriggling.
 Day  4-7:  The  parents  will  try  atleast  a  couple  of  time  to  carry  the  wrigglers  in  their  mouth  and  stick  them  at  different  portions  in  the  tank.
 Day  7  :  The  fries  are  free  swimming.  I  could  observe  them  for  about  half  an  hour  post  free  swimming.  Counting  possible.....guess  one,  in  the  morning  around  100  fries   !  Few  things  I  have  noticed  are;  
 (a)  the  parents  still  can’t  believe  that  the  fries  are  free  swimming,  and  hence,  they  are  making  a  desperate  attempt  to  take  them  in  their  mouth  and  make  them  ‘stick’  against  the  wall        
 (b)  gradually  they  are  accepting  the  ‘fate’  and  just  concentrating  on  carrying  the  ones  who  are  straying  from  the  group  and  putting  them  back  in  the  group.  
 (c)  the  fries  gravitate  towards  the  light.  
 
 Filtration:  The  filtration  was  switched  off  after  the  eggs  were  laid.  Started  sponge  filter.
 
 Feeding:  Artemia,  Microworms.  
 
 Water  change:  RO  water,  40%  every  week  as  replacement  and  use  drip  technique  to  ensure  the  change  in  pH  is  not  too  rapid.  
 
 
 Day  30:  The  fries  start  looking  like  baby  Angels     
 Size:  Varied...from  quarter  to  half  an  inch.
 Feeding:  So  far,  feeding  on  brine  shrimp,  micro  worms  and  micro  tubifex.
 Water  parameters:  RO  water  mostly....40%  change  every  week.
 Plans:  
 1.  Feeding:  Gradually  move  to  non  live
 2.  Water:  Move  to  non  RO,  tap  water:  Added  30%  tap  water  today
 3  Move  them  to  a  grow  out  tank  (in  making)
 
 
 General  Observations:  Soft  water  more  important  than  live  feed  to  induce  breeding.  I  have  not  given  live  food  and  the  Angels  bred!
