The new batch should hatch tonight!!!!!8)
Thats cool. How and what do you feed them? Do you keep them in their own tank? I often thought about trying to breed some clowns but havent quite got around to reading up on it. I used to breed FW fish, I had Brichardi's that bred alot. They were able to raise the fry in a tank full of African Cichlids. They were some of the meanest fish when they had babies. All the other fish that were twice their size would cower in the corners of the tank. I also had some fancy guppies that bred so much I would raise the young ones for Arrowana food.
Thats awesome! Congrats on everything!
Thanks.....We have a Cichlid 125 gallon tank where several of them have broods every few weeks...We have tons of babies all the time...LOL
The clowns we are feeding live rotifers for the first week and then begin to introduce live newborn brine shrimp in the second week while continuing to feed live rotifers...We are in the process now of catching the new hatchlings from the latest batch. We built a small hatchery that is in the original tank, we are finding that keeping them in the same tank with the same water is the most effective way of keeping fry alive...8)
Wow that is soo cool! How many batches do you get in a month? It sounds like a lot.. Nice work!
At least two a month, sometimes three. This is now their 6th batch....8)
