So I've been on here daily following along with everyone else's breeding progress, hoping to help out and learn a little along the way and I realized I never really formally introduced myself to the community. So... Hi... I'm Pickle. (there is story to the name - someday I'll have to tell it here) Anyhow, I've been in tanks since the 80's, FOWLR since the early 90's, Reef tanks since '06 and breeding clowns for just over a year now. I guess you could say I've been attempting to breed clowns for over a year and just started successfully breeding them in March of this year. The hobby just seemed to guide me in that direction as it was next challenge. I mean when I started reef tanks I went through all the usual steps - Softies and LPS then upgrading and more demanding corals then upgrading again and keeping SPS and more difficult to keep coral - till one day my pair of O's which have been with me since I set up my first reef tank in '06 spawned. When I saw the eggs I knew I had to learn how to raise the fry. So I started a thread and doing research - lot of it. Countless hours of reading books and threads online. I was really fortunately to attract the attention of some of the most successful breeders in the states who openly and willingly gave me insight and advise. I am by no means an expert but I believe that this hobby is all about paying it forward. There is already an awesome thread here on this site started by Tropical Addict http://www.3reef.com/forums/breeding-tropical-fish/clownfish-laid-eggs-fry-raising-journal-update-4-1-11-a-103318.html that I've been following here for a little while now and thought it would be cool if I posted some of my progress here as well. Anyhow, I still have that original pair but I've moved on to breeding Snowflakes. Here is the pair that got it all started for me: Here is a pic of my snow: And some of the luck that I've had. It's amazing how early you can pic the snowflakes out: Anyhow - that's it in a nutshell. I'll be hanging out and following along some your threads and the progress of other breeders here on 3reef. It's been great meeting you all!
