Certainly not the first time anyone's ever done it, but it's new to me. When I was younger I was too impatient and moved around too much for any clownfish pairs to spawn. My previous successes have been with freshwater tetras, ghost shrimp, and dwarf shrimp. Her watching over him aerating the eggs: Whew! No more micromanagement from the boss: Each of the ocellaris found its way into my tank as a gift. The female, "Bobette," was in one of Jess's tanks and was on time-out for being too aggressive. She's supposed to have come from Robin. The male, "Bob," was from another local hobbyist who needed to separate him from the other juveniles he grew up with, who had paired up and were harassing him. Bob was still an adolescent at the time, even though he was just a tad bigger than Bobette, and had torn fins and his entire body had turned a ghastly white color. I have Jess and Blake to thank for contributing the fish. It's a very small clutch, and I am prepared for a 0% hatch/survival rate, but am scrambling to make sure I have a larval rearing environment set up. Might as well get some experience in with rotifer culturing while I'm at in. I'm also planning to get a clay pot and tiles to entice them to use for future spawns. In the meantime, I'm leaving the first few spawns in the tank so as not to disturb their rhythm. Still doing some research into new approaches and developments since Joyce Wilkerson's book. If anyone has tips to share, any and all advice is appreciated!
