    3. Mated pair of Stenopus hispidus (Coral Banded Shrimp)

    cool, nice idea

    but I read on MOFIB that cleaner shrimps takes 6 months to get to metamorphosis. And somebody there said that if you are not planning to go anywhere in your live for the next 6 months, then you can do cleaner shrimps.

    Are you into dottybacks?

    You are aware of the fact that they are highly invasive and very very not endangered,in fact Florida to jamaica they are a menace and causing huge problems on the reefs there eating up to thirty juvenile angels and wrasses per day?people are trying to encourage killing and eating of them there.

    I would suggest you rather go for rare/scarce/high demand or endangered aquarium fish breeding so if you are successful then we put less pressure on wild stocks...just a suggestion;)

    thats P. Volitans, i am going after the dwarf (Dendrochirus brachypterus).

    but first things first, i am starting with the first that spawns, be it clowns, damsels, dottybacks or shrimp

    Wow kewl breeding setup dallas, wish you all the best dude:thumbup:. Both of my cleaner shrimp keep on going green under their tails & never knew why both at the same time & never thought that you could see which is male or female & thought that they cater for each other but here you say that you have a pair. confused

    Try the clowns and the peppermints first. Everything else is a waste of time. Without experience in breeding those, you will fail with the other species. Which will end up in frustration.
