Start with 7 drops per gallon meth blue, 3 drops per gallon Maroxy, a couple drops per gallon acriflavin.  Use a bare tank, cleaned with a bleach solution & rinsed well afterward for hatching.  On the third day start doing 50% water changes, once they are swimming use a half dose of copper sulfate, Coppersafe is generally available in shops. 

Continue with the daily 50% water changes for the first two weeks, replacing the copper the first week.  Depending on the tank & spawn size this may be the time to move them to a larger tank, 20 or 29 gallon.

I dont remove mine till they are free swimming, The parents are diligent enough to stay on those eggs like flies on a pig. Mine breed in a community tank.

My father used to breed angels in the 60's and he always bred angels and collected eggs like you do.  I heard of people using M blue to keep the fry and eggs healthy but again something i dont use.

Will the parents tend to their own young in the tank they are in or?

I have just recently had an angel pair lay eggs.  Each time I have taken the eggs and have had them go to 6 days successfully, but as soon as they are ready to free swim, the entire batch dies.  I have controlled the temperature and used good aeration, with no success.  Does anyone have any suggestions?  I am out of ideas.  Thank you.
