View Full Version : My clowns are a mated pair...now what
01/27/2006, 08:41 AM
I have recently found that my false percs are laying eggs. I do not know anything about the hatching process. They are currently in a community tank(I know the babies if they hatch won't survive in there) I was looking forward to next time. I do have a tank that can be set-up to allow these clowns threir own home. Where is a good resource for information on doing this?

Thanks! Will do the reading to see if it is something I can tackle. I have plenty of room for culturing and extra equipment....so we'll see!

I raised true percula clownfish for about 4 years, a good book to read is Clownfishes by Joyce D. Wilkerson. It will give you all of the basic info that you need to know on how to capture the larvae and to raise them. I found that when the lights went out out I unpluggged all pumps and placed a flashlight ontop of a couple of buckets so that the light is on the surface of the water facing the back of the tank. Approx. 1 hour later the larvae would start hatching, I then used a dark bowl and attracted the larvae into it with another flashlight. This takes a lot of practice and patience. Good luck let me know if there is any other info or help that you need
