    Thanks. Of course, I have no idea what to do with them. I'm not exactly a marine fish guru. Coral and inverts I know, but fish are still mostly a mystery to me.

    They are really small, but not as small as newly hatched baby clownfish. I think they're maybe about 1.5 cm across if you count their fins.

    I tried to feed them baby brine, but it's a 75g tank. I suppose if I really want to ensure their survival, I should take them out and put them in a separate tank - right? But then what?

    you raise them

    Mother nature gave you a challenge. Up to you to accept.

    And the babies like to hide within the spines of a long spine urchin.
    If you do not have a urchin, you can always make one with reef safe clay or putty and toothpicks.

    There's a coral beauty in there with them, but he/she doesn't seem to pay them any mind.

    Urchin, you say? This one seems to have taken a liking to the torch coral. Will that work? Or will the Torch coral eat it? Hmmm...

    Well I've already accidently off-ed about 5 or 6 of them because I'm an idiot. I still have 17 left though. 16 in a 10g nursery and 1 I left in the main tank just because.

    Cool awesome. :peroni:. Enrich your brine shrimps you see their growth in a week. Use paraguard or something similar. Feed them 3-4 times a day.
