    If you have the time go for it!
    I grew my 250ml into 30L :thumbup:

    Just remember it is hard work.
    I never got around to raising my clown fry :(

    Live food is more nutritional than frozen so try to get some sort of rotifer & phyto. If you don't come right at least your other fish has free food...;)
