    It's really nice when you can turn something you love into a career opportunity- good luck and I am also looking forward to future progress reports and pictures.

    I recently made a contact within my local reef club who happens to have SEVERAL breeding tanks of EVERY KIND OF CLOWN, and I do mean EVERY kind of clown. I am trying to talk him out of some of clowns to start a breeding population of them. This guy has 1000's of clowns, Im sure he can throw 2 of each my way, haha.
    This pic is just part of his tanks..

    eh I get all the clowns I want for $10 each. and you all know if you take to babies when they are about 1inch long, you will end up with a pair of them because they're hermaphrodites :p So I can get a pair for $20

    Plus I am going to do his website for him and my payment is going to be a whole bunch of clowns!!!

    Hey Guys! Sorry about the long delay without an update. :( I promise to get back on and get the pics reloaded and tell you all what's been happening. I've had my first eggs layed about a week ago. They were infertile, but my female always shows signs of being gravid (pregnant) again. So we're keeping our fingers crossed. I've run into a lot of financial difficulties and I've had to sell some things off. But I still have several pairs of clowns and am looking to rebound. I will update this post by the end of the week........ Promise! Thanks for checking back and I hope everyone is well.
