    large scale pod culture

    I haven't tried raising pods in bulk. They need some clean conditions, and cleaning big containers is not my favorite thing. I've raised all the pods I need in gallon plastic PETE jars, and that works for me. Once upon a time, I raised tigriopus outdoors in a 17 gallon tub. I set it up with...

    Spirulina powder as food for apocyclops?

    I'm not sure, but I do know that microalgae works very well. Just enough to tint the water a light cloudy green. Reed Mariculture is your friend.

    Maroon clown babies on edge of glass

    I think it is too late for this reply, but one reason for larvae staying at the glass is if you have not tinted the water with microalgae. The other reason is too much light. The water should be just a bit cloudy or cloudier and tinted green if you are using a green algae.

    Blue green chromis spawning

    If you can culture some live phytoplankton, like Isochrysis, you can also culture copepods, and use the baby copepods for feeding the just hatched larvae.

    Who's breeding what?

    The right sized prey is always the problem, isn't it? The Clarkiis were great and easy to raise, and cute as buttons, but didn't sell well. I've given up selling clownfish. Not to derail the thread...

    black ray gobies.

    Sorry to be so late in replying. I so rarely come to RC. Oceanops larvae are large enough to take rotifers, but they appreciate copepods as well. I am also working with damsels and gobies with smaller larvae(yellow watchman ) and ruby red dragonets. The damsels and dragonets hatch as...
