    A few month ago I bought a rack of tanks which I have set up and am planing to use to breed clown fish:slayer:. I have two pairs of clowns at the moment a pair of ocellaris
    and Gold Bar Maroons. I am not doing it for a profit just want a new challenge.
    Here is my basic set up.[​IMG]
    shame here is my female ocellaris with her half tail I got her like that. They are a spawning pair.[​IMG]
    Here is the Male Maroon
    [​IMG]
    Here are the maroons together
    [​IMG]
    Here is my green water it looking much better now, its been running for 2 months now I harvest every 3 days.
