Just what it says. (Blue neon goby/ cleaner goby). I've managed to get most of them into a round-bottomed glass bowl floating in the main tank. I assume the next step is to run some arline tubing into it with a small airpump for circulation. What then? Does anyone in Pretoria have the relevant cultures going (green water? Rotifers? I'm currently looking at breeding journals to see what they're supposed to eat. Would freshwater green water help tide them over?) If anyone in the area has experience with this and wants to take some to raise, you're welcome too.

Oh yeah, POIDH. Yes, my tank's an algae-ridden mess

I'd be interested to see your results. I have fry often, every 2 weeks or so, if I look at the right time when my lights start coming on in the morning.

I have however never bothered to scoop them out to try and raise them, so they end up as fish food. Mine are actually from an E. oceanops male and an E. evelynae female.

Honestly I don't expect much, since I don't have any cultures set up.
