    Craigar, what species of clown (and morph?) are you raising?

    You should throw this all into a MBI report. That is one of the best spawn survival rates I have seen! Well done!

    I'm here. A few others on here too. It's not too bad to do. Need rotifers right off the bat, phyto cultures as well. And baby brine shrimp down the road about a 3 to 5 days maybe a week after they hatch. Need a small 5 gallon tank to hold them in, plan on doing a water change of 5 gallons when they hatch. I used a small bit of airline to siphon them and and a flashlight to attract them to the airline.

    Sounds good ill go there in the morning...so I read I should have a couple days then have to transplant the pot into another tank with an airstone, heater etc...I guess im gonna try and have a go at this by the end of the week do they need special lighting or added nutrients to the rots and brine

    Run an air line very light bubble to kind of stir the eggs. Leave them in the main tank as long as possible. You want the tank lit 24/7 first few days but black the tank out you just want little ambient light. The rots and brine will eat phyto. Talk to algae barn. You need nanochloropsis (phyto). A few 2 liter bottles, rigid air line. F2 if I remember is the food the phyto eats. A light for the phyto to grow, brine shrimp hatchery. Probably forgetting stuff

    If you want it, I'll give it to you if I can find it. I have some f2 I'll sell us for cheap and some bbs eggs never opened.
