About 20 years ago I got into Reefkeeping after keeping and breeding African Cichlids. Well, I finally have come full circle in my aquarium keeping hobby. After wanting to breed some kind of saltwater fish for many years, I finally decided to go for it.
I have had several breeding pairs of clownfish over the years but have never tried to raise the fry. Truthfully, I didn't have any idea how to begin.
My Black Ocellaris had been faithfully laying clutch after clutch of healthy looking eggs. So I decided to give it try. Let me tell you, it wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be.
After 7 successful batches of fry, and 500 baby Black Clowns, I think I can call this experiment a success.
As with all good threads, now for some pics.
First off a picture of the proud parents on my display
The first batch hatched 1 hour after lights out on Dec. 4th.
Here is batch A at day 3
As you can see I'm using the green water technique.
