    "MaBrouk!: (arabic "Congrats")!!! :D

    Event most of us dream of seeing one day in our own tank.

    Think Matt should have a long term contest on "Whose Clowns can keep their eggs the longest in Aquarium" - that goes on into future, so years from now, one of us can boast that we have the toughest, meanest, etc. etc. etc. (returned from play "King and I" last night.. ;) ) pair on the planet.

    Best wishes to the parents, "clutch" and proud keeper! ;D

    I think there are mostly gone now. I was told by a breeder (Zulu_principal) that a lot of the time the first lay is eaten by the parents. Due to low nutrition.
    When the move to the forty takes place. I will prob set something up so I can raise the Fry

    No not yet. I've ordered it along with a 150W Radium MH with 2 55W PCs. I'm taking my time as I need some time to come up with the cash.
    I will drill it with a back overflow and two side returns.

    What a hobby I got myself into. Know one ever told me I was going to become obsessed.
