  3. My 1st attempt at raising clownfish fry....

    Everyone is growing well and so far no more losses. I think I'm down to 170 + or -. Some of them are starting to get darker and I have 1 that is completely black except for his face. He's the smallest one in the tank(go figure) and feisty! Going to be moving them to my sump pretty soon. https://vimeo.com/181513604 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  5. Black or clear silicone for new tank?

    http://www.elos.eu/diamond/diamond.html Look down under their silicone description. It is probably proprietary but there are better options out there than black silicone. If I was building a tank I would look up some commercially available black adhesives.

    Good point Sean. I'm not too concerned about it yet. Just keeping everyone up to date. I added a deltec mce600 skimmer to the tank today just in case though. They're pooping ALOT???? I'm planning on moving them to a bigger tank soon. Hopefully in the next week.
  7. Black or clear silicone for new tank?

    Black. My tank is an Elos rimless (30x20x20)bottom perimeter braced and has held up great for over 7 years.(knock on wood) Clear would drive me nuts.

    Thanks Chris. I did worry about it at first but it could have been anything.

    Right on! Got a pic to share?
  10. My 1st attempt at raising clownfish fry....

    Here's a pic and a vid as of this am. Lost 2 more babies over the 4 day trip. I'm thinking it was due to over feeding as when I got home there was a ton of uneaten food on the bottom of the tank. Did a quick w/c and added amquel to combat the ammonia. All is well today. https://vimeo.com/180617681 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  17. My 1st attempt at raising clownfish fry....

    Thanks! So far the first 2 weeks were tough. Looks like it may get easier as they get older.

  20. My 1st attempt at raising clownfish fry....

    Forgot to add that I stopped feeding Rotifers at day 12. They're eating otohime A and B.
  21. My 1st attempt at raising clownfish fry....

    my pair layed their eggs on the same BIG rock multiple times before I decided to try raising them. They have only layed them on a tile twice now. I put the tile right in front of the spot the layed all of their previous clutches. They still cleaned off a spot on the tile just as they did on the rock. I would use the 20l or 29g for the broodstock (parents) tank and save the 10g for the hatching tank. Keep the crabs out. My broodstock only has a handful of snails.
  22. My 1st attempt at raising clownfish fry....

    they hit metamorphosis around day 7/8. Fed baby brine a few times but stopped as I didn't find it necessary. There is 178 fry.

  24. My 1st attempt at raising clownfish fry....

    I've lost a 3 in the last few days, not to sure why. All of them looked as if they were stuck in the metamorphosis stage. Not too worried about it now though. I was able to get a count of how many during the move over to their new 30g. 178 healthy clowns at 2 weeks old tomorrow! Here's a quick vid of their new casa... https://vimeo.com/178557842
