From what i have been able to find out looks like they are tangs or the clowns wouldnt have eaten the rest of them. Any suggestions on how to keep they alive or is this just not possible seems like there is nothing on them online.

In order to survive, fry need to be moved to a separate nursery tank that is stocked with rotifers. Google Pickle's Clownfish breeding thread. It's a very good read. The good news is that there should be another clutch of eggs in a couple of weeks. Good luck!!

A scientist named Emma Forbes has successfully raised captive bred tangs. Apparently they are very difficult. I tried searching for her routine but it is hard to find since I don't have a lot of time. I did see that at day 50 Artemis nauplii was too large for the fry although they did try to eat it... Anyways feed the smallest thing you can find!
