Yes,they can be raised with L rots,but they´re difficult to crack Hope you have better luck!
Yr tank looks pretty barren.The male get´s more aggressive during egg caring and the female could use some extra hiding places.

Fantastic! What did you use in the end - L strain rotifers and newly hatched brine, and was it really 12 years of work or did you have some breaks!?

I applaude you for continuing to work with these for so many years given their low commercial value.

Good on you

hi,chris melb,I use copepod and bbs in the end.
Thank you for your praise. It's not easy to breed sea fish, but the fun of it is really hard to buy.
