Google Pickle's guide to breeding. It's a good start. Also, if you have a Nook app you can buy Clownfishes by Joyce Wilkerson on it. That's what I've been using as a reference for my first ever breeding attempt.

How did it work out for you on your first attempt?

It's still work in progress as its only been 15 days since the hatch. I'm sure you know this by now but the first thing you want to do is get a rotifer culture going, preferably 4-7 days prior to hatch night. I use Reed mariculture for rotifers, RG Complete and TDO.

I won't be ready this batch but maybe the next. How long before they hatch?

7-10 days. You need to count the days from lay to hatch for precision. Otherwise you might be a day or two early, or late.

They hatch last night. Should I be able to see any of the fry in the morning or will all ready be gone(ate or suck up in the filter)?

Check out a few YouTube videos , pickles guide I found more helpful , you will need Rotifers and I added bbs the next day and had better success than just the Rotifers .

Harvest Rotifers daily and change water frequently , keep salinity close between Rotifers and stock water , feed them keep them green , but I usually start feeding them BBS the second day . Feed BBS selcon so they can be nutritious
