    by the time they hatch and you managed to catch them, most would be fish food anyway. Raising baby clowns is a lot of work.

    When the eggs turns a "silver" colour then 12 hours later just as the lights goes out, go wait to see them hatch. I have a video clip of my clowns laying the eggs but obviously one cant put direct light on the newly hatched fishies as that would kill them... but yet very interesting to watch. My foxface is a proffesional to see when the babies is hatching cause she waits around for the free food !!

    @Handy; Place a clay tile inside your tank, standing vertically up at an angle. They might spawn on the tile and the eggs will hatch in 7 - 10 days. Remove the tile on the evening of suspected hatching. Lightly aerate the eggs with a airstone till a slight movement on the eggs. As soon as your larvae aquarium lighting goes off they will hatch :). And in 24 hours you may start feeding them rotifer :).

    I am fortunate to own the book: Clownfishes by Joce D. Wilkernson. But clowns have not yet spawned :(.

    Awesome anemone!!
