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

    1 more for now...https://vimeo.com/178623980
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

    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.

  6. 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

    Will do Shaun. They're doing well today. Almost ready to move into their 30g tank with a sponge filter. That should help out a little bit on the maintenance side. Almost all of them have their head stripes and many have their 2nd stripe. They're starting to bicker with each other too. Hopefully the new tank and some decorations will help out with that.

    Gorgeous percs Chris! As soon as I find a good pair, I'm gonna raise a batch or 2 of those as well.
  11. My 1st attempt at raising clownfish fry....

    Almost too quickly Chris! I can't believe how quick they're growing up.

    Looks nice! I would switch out the purple+ for another actinic or coral+. I run 3 blue+ and a coral+ with a Phoenix 150wMH. When my halide shuts off, the 4 t5s in that configuration look nice to my eye.

    Dude! That wasp fish is freakin cool! Digging the list of gobies... Sorry you have to downsize that tank.
  20. My 1st attempt at raising clownfish fry....

    I still have close to 100 survivors. Lost a few during water changes. It seems like they're attracted(curious) about anything attached to my hand...(siphon, sieve, flashlight, and beers ????). A few have succumbed to injuries via siphon tube during cleaning/water changes. PITA! They're doing well other than that. Eating Rotifers, Otohime A and live baby brine. Can't wait until metamorphosis!

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

    No way.... 1 batch is taking all of my time... Gonna raise 2-3 clutches for now. We'll see maybe down the road a bit.
  24. My 1st attempt at raising clownfish fry....

    You betcha! I'll post updates every few days with development pics.
  25. My 1st attempt at raising clownfish fry....

    So, a little bit about reed mariculture.... They have a very simple feed program for hobbyists. I'm using their "L" strain Rotifers, rotigrow complete, their compact culture system, and the "hobbyists" pack of otohime. So far so good. I'm pretty impressed at how easy(but time consuming) their program is. Well worth the investment. Plus, the look on my daughters face while watching the fry eat and develop is PRICELESS!
