So this happened

So I bought a bonded pair of picasso clowns from my LFS. I was cleaning the glass today and I see they have laid eggs on the scraper. What do I do?

Nothing. If you want to try to raise the babies at some point get all of the supplies and foods ready and raise a batch when you are prepared.

The eggs finally hatched sometime last night... Have been in the hatch tanks since Friday night. Rotifers are growing nicely, so far so good, now just have to get through the next 48-72 hrs...

Sorry for the long absence, they went on strike, and after they started laying again the last 3-5 were laid on the back glass... fast forward to last weekend, and they laod again this time on the wavemarker! Just hatched last night. There ate still a lot of eggs that havent hatched... we'll see if i can keep em alive for more than 4 days

how are they doing?
have you had any success with the previous batches?
Any tips you care to share?

I've got a pair of Black Ice Clowns that laid their 2nd clutch of eggs on 10-13-2018. The first clutch died 1 or 2 days after hatching. (not sure why)
