    I bought two Darwin Black Ocellaris today. They are four years old, and should be spawing soon. I'll keep everyone posted.

    Anyone local have L or S strain rotifers and Nannochloropsis cultures going?

    Well, the fish are in the new 55 gal reef tank. I was going to place them in a 20 gal high brodstock tank but they are too pretty, they have a little blue tint in the white stripes. Looks like I will have to build a larval snagger. Any way, they are showing all of the correct pair behaivors so after a high quailty diet I bet they will start spawning soon. Looks like I will have to order some rotifers and nanochloropsis.
