Spawning behavior for Purplemask Angelfish.After sun goes down, these Purplemask angelfish will be starting spawning for half hour.Male angelfish will chase female and male try to stimulate female's belly and they continue to have love dance about 5 minutes and finally spawning a few seconds.It was hard dive to capture for spawning and eggs but I could make it after spending a week with this subject.
