can either let them try and survive in the tank they are born in or plump them a little and let them loose in my acara tank... either way they are food

Ya I made the mistake of getting a male guppy and four females. My tank is full of fry...feeding them to my bigger fish in other tank now. I don't need like 50 fish in my 20 gallon!

and I got a pair of angels who have laid eggs 3 times now. Looks like IDK 50 eggs or more each time but the next day all the eggs are gone. So IDK where they go.

1 striped raphael
1 pleco
4 angels
4 yellow labido
All of these will eat eggs. If they vanish after lights out, it could be the parents, most likely the cat, but also maybe the pleco. Do you really have yellow labs and angels together?

Put the pair of angels in the 20, feed them guppy fry. See if they get further. Also try leaving the light on.

Yes I do lol. I bought the yellow labs on impulse they're so awesome looking. I've actually got a 40 gallon I'm setting up now. So they'll he split up soon idk which to put where though.

And the weird thing is my angels and labs leave each other alone. The pair of Angels go after the other two when laying eggs. And I got one yellow lab that goes after all three labs and the pleco.

But either way my goal is yellow labs, some blue cichlid, and Congo tetras in none tank. And angelfish and idk what else in other tank. I want a pair of blue rams but might be better off in the 20?

That might work...they don't grow very big so knock yourself out.
