Clown eggs for my percs. Laid today. I'm getting my tank ready. Green water coming so are rotifers. First clutch for this pair.  And it's been years since I've done this.  Anything new discovered in the last few years or still same?  This is how I'm doing my rotis and green water. Just smaller scale. Since I only have 2 clowns breeding.

 

I have a ada tank ready minus the black paper on sides. I'm doing that tomorrow.  I have a small led mounted above the tank.  Foam white under tank. 

Then bottles for green water and 5 gallon tank for rotifers. Just need a light for green water. My old one broke. Wish me luck. I got my clown book out too...

I'm interested to see that shelf unit constructed!  Seems pretty comprehensive.  I didn't have a lot of luck breeding brine shrimp myself but had no clue what I was doing either.

I've done the clowns before. I actually do something different for brine. I'll swear by them. I run a few of them, start about a day or two apart. Since you only want one or two day old brine. And it helps make sure they are shell less too

I only do 4 bottles of green water too.  And then on a separate air pump I do the rotifers. I separate the rotifers due to not wanting any change of cross contamination to my green water. I'm also using LEDs for green water this time.  My t8s fixture went out. Apparently  you can't go out and buy a fixture anymore short like I need it two bulbs and has a wall plug. They are either one bulb, or need wiring. So I got a dual led from home depot

What length fixture are you looking for? I have a three t8 bulb 36" Fixture seperate switches for the bulbs so can only use the ones you want. Works great256dcc05149a3f61b70beedeb2e57a9b.jpg
