View Full Version : Easiest clownfish to breed?

03/30/2016, 02:07 PM
Hi RC. I would like to try my hand in clownfish breeding and was wondering what type is the most successful or easy to breed. I would think the designer clowns would be a lot harder than a normal type. Also wild caught or tank raised?

Thanks :bounce3:

Tank bred Ocellaris or Percula, designer variants won't change difficulty of breeding.

My tomato clowns laid eggs every month. Even when one of the pair died and I paired the remaining fish with a juvenile, they were laying eggs again within two months.

I had an ocellaris pair for 7 years, and they never laid eggs, although I think most people have a different experience.

Designer clowns are the same as the regular versions of their respective types, but not all of the fry will exhibit the markings of the parents. Some (possibly most) will look like the standard version.
