Hey Sport,
Did you ever feed them brine shrimp, and if yes what day? Also when did you put the maxjet with the filter

I just wanted to see if I could raise them but I'm going to have to figure out something. I have another hatch that will be going through meta this weekend.

This is day 5 for them.

Day 18 feeding time.

I have done much thinking posting in my own thread with little response. Iím at this point, wanting to show how fast they can grow. I'm a home hobbyist and for me it's something fun to try.

Thanks all of you. I enjoy the reefing hobby and never really planned on doing any breed but when the opportunity presented itself I had to give it a shot. With that being said the pair will spawn again in a couple hours. The femaleís tube it down and they are frantically picking at their spawning slate. Iím going to raise those as well and then Iím going to let a few spawns go back into the reef.

Just so you know trying to raise this many is hard work when I already work 10 hours a day on my job, Iím needing a break. To bad some of you donít live closer Iíd give you a clutch and let you work for a while. LOL

Will post updates later tonight.

I start feeding BBS on day 6 the video does not show but you can see their belly get orange. I don't stop rots though for some that may not adapt to them.

Spawn 7 just ended.

I had a poster in another thread that ask how to I protect the eggs. No worries the parents will chase any fish away no matter how big. You will see it in the end of the video.

I am also following along. We are in a similar situation, I have averaged 67 hours per week over the last 52 weeks! But since they have decided to spawn so regularly I want to try to raise a batch. Keep up the good work in the thread!

Day 24 no loses.

Over the weekend I had a bit of an ammoina problem which I got under control quickly because there were so many in my 20L. I set up another 10 gallon and move about a 3rd of them. I will have them in a 40 breeder this weekend. The water in the 20 is a still a little cloudy but ammonia is well within the safe zone in both thanks.

Sorry I haven't posted in a while but so busy these days. LOL

20 Yes that is Aiptasia you see....My Bad?

Day 26 grow out time.

Well I have them all back together in their new condo grow out 40B and they love it, eating like pigs. They have only been in the tank about 3 hours. Most are 3/8Ē + a very few are still about ľĒ long.

My last spawn #6, I send home with some of my family that loves the clownfish as do I. Spawn 7 will hatch tomorrow night.

Day 28 4 weeks old.

I took these yesterday on day 28. Most are about 1/2" long.


Look at the eye color of the one that is in line with the lower heater suction cup.

Sport, Great Job!!! Wow! how cool are all of these. I can fully appreicate this now because I know the work that has gone into each and every day. How is the Spawn 7 batch doing so far? Also it appears that you have combined fry from different batches into one tank. Is that correct?
I was wondering because I have the 5 fry from my first batch and was hoping to have more this week. If I have survivors from my first batch can I combine them with my 2nd after the
2nd goes through meta?

ID question for those that really know clown types.

A little off my thread topic but I met a profession clown breeder at the INDMAS frag swap 2 week ago and he had it going on. Was only selling Snow Flakes, Black Ice, Picassoís and a few Ocellaris. I showed him my spawn 5 thread and he told me the parents looked like they were Mocha clowns and said they were a cross between the perculaís, ocellaris and the black clowns.

Here is a pic of the when Iíd had them about 2 months.



What do you think they are?

Spawn 7 has been my best thus far. Still only day 4 for them but looking good they will be starting meta on Friday. We all learn together.
