    Sorry I haven't been around. Very busy trying to raise clownfish fry. First attempt was a miserable fail. Second go around has been much better. Around 40 or so at 10 dph.

    Had to culture nanochloropsis

    To feed the rotifer culture to feed the early fry

    Hatched brine shrimp to feed the fry as they are older.

    I believe they just went through metamorphysis. Starting to look like fish and swim a little more controlled.


    I must thank sean at algae barn for a lot of help with the cultures.

    Now to get ready for the next batch of eggs should hatch in about 4 days and teach the fish how to eat flake.

    Try turning the temp up and feading extra as well as a varoety of food. Can always turn up the love music too ha. Also, try putting a small terra cotta pot in where their home is. When they do lay eggs its 100x easier to remove the eggs

    My miserable attempts at raising fry taught me I would be doing Mother Nature a favor to bud out, lol. Looks like you are doing an awesome job to get them this far. Can't wait to see more updates!
