    I had a pleasant surprise this morning.
    2 baby Bengali’s (a coral got the third)

    I have them in a hatching basket,
    And the brine shrimp are on the go.

    Any advice regarding food

    In the wild the babies hide in the long spines of the urchin for protection.
    It doesn't have to be real as @dallasg pointed out. One from sosatie sticks will suffice.

    Thanks, I will try the fake urchin!
    They seem to be feeding well on the brine shrimp.
    I had a rough plan when buying the adults,
    (I had to exchange one adult when it became obvious they were the same sex)
    But it came as quite a shock.

    They are much bigger than Clownfish fry.

    Yep, they spend a lot if time in the males mouth so they have plenty of time to grow before you see them.
