    Check out the book Clownfishes by Joyce D. Wilkerson. A lot of good information about breeding them in there.

    I just got my copy of Joyce WIlkerson's book today and it's great. I highly reccomend it. Not only does it have information obout getting your clowns to spawn, it had important info you will need if you actually want to be able to raise the fry. There is also some good information about clown fish diseases that is applicable to most of our other fish as well. I got my copy from Premium Aquatics for a better price than Amazon or B&N.
