    Hi Marcel and others, what all are you breeding or attempting to breed. Also in which areas are you.

    Rogan is doing Banggai's and has attempted Tiger Tail seahorses and peppermint shrimps.
    We are in PE.

    I ´m based in Cape Town.
    Right now, I focus on my albino clowns and regular ocellaris. I just hope my tomatos don´t spawn. I also got orange skunks, but no space for breeding.
    Biggest target for me right now is to raise my yellow belly damsels.
    On a long term, all depends on Yuri and Lanzo. If they can organized, what I requested, I should end up with around 15 different clown species.
    Peppermints and Banggais as soon as I got more space.

    I have a breeding pair of tomato clowns but haven't seen anything resembling eggs since I got them & they have 2 favorite spots but no luck yet. I have them for about a year now & not sure if it was other inhabitants in the same tank but Have just moved them to a tank which only have a few blue leg hermits, 1 decorative crab & 1 scooter. Should I remove the scooter, hermits & crab or should it be ok? they are always aggressive towards me especially when I clean the tank & attacks the scraper & my hands hectically & now wear gloves if I have to put my hands in the tank. Their bit is soar & it bleeds for a long time if they get me.

    Rogan has about 10 baby Banggai's at present as from this morning. The female is already wanting to give more eggs to the male. Not ideal as he has not fattened up.

    What angels have you got, sounds exciting. What cultures have you got for if the angels spawn. We have rotifer and greenwater, but from what I remember, Angels require other specialised cultures and wild plankton.

    Sorry to say it straight forward.

    Are you guys totally nuts now? Angels, tangs and triggers?

    First raise brineshrimp to adulthood. That is something that everybody should try, because the majority is not able to do it.

    Awesome - many thanks Frans. Is that the pic of an adult brineshrimp? Do you okes perhaps know how long after the eggs have hatched, that they reach their adult stage? Days? Weeks?

    It's just that I have something very interesting going on in my sump tanks...
