    it looks really good, would be cool if you could get those snowflakes producing, have you got phytoplankton, rotifers and/or brine shrimp cultures set up for feeding fry?

    (Just as a side thing are you still looking for fish for your fowlr? Just pm me if you are)

    Thanks @Wesd....will get some cultures going as soon as they lay the 1st batch.....1st couple batches won't be very good so it gives me some time to get the cultures going

    Looks good. Best of luck. What are you feeding the parents? I believe excellent nutrition for the parents is vital to help ensure you get a high and healthy hatch rate.

    nice, as @viper357 mentioned, you want to give them a good nutritional meal high in HUFA's.
    Look at Ocean nutrition range of frozen and flakes.
    Prime Reef and Brineshrimp plus are great

    The pots give the clowns a sense of security,basically a home and it also provides a surface for them to lay their eggs on

    @chops :Really? I would like to know who's breeding in PE.

    @ianP :Have you found out which phytoplankton/ rotifer cultures you want to grow and where you can source them? If you want more information I have created a thread discussing this: Phytoplankton cultures/ media / equipment (Phytoplankton cultures/ media / equipment - Marine Aquariums South Africa)
