So guys great news. I woke up this morning and found my clownfish cleaning and protecting their first batch of eggs. I know I won't be able to save these as I am not prepared at all and was not expecting them to breed for a while. I'm looking for all information on how to get prepared and raise the next batch when they lay again. Thanks!

Congrats! I'm still lookin for my clowns to lay eggs!

You may want to talk to @IKD. They've had some success.

You'll want to wait for a few rounds of eggs to pass before you try to raise them. The parents will get better at laying and taking care of the eggs. Google "pickles guide to breeding clowns" and you'll find a great write up of how to successfully breed clownfish.
