My clownfish fry at 7 weeks

Update: Here are some pictures of my fry on Day 48. They are eating anything I give them, but primarily they are getting Otohime daily. No losses.

Since this hatch, my pair have spawned every 10-11 days and each hatch is better and better. I estimate that I now have about 350 fry spaced 10-11 days apart. In addition, I just had another hatch on Monday night and there have been zero losses! It's been a learning experience along the way, and as someone else said in their post, I think I've finally figured it out (at least for now)!

My pair spawned again last night and the eggs look very healthy. Should be another really good hatch!

Here ia a pic of my temporary setup. I'm setting up a new growout system to make room for all the new additions.

Great job Prideprops. They look awesome.

"I'm starting to get impatient with mine. Its been 2 1/2 months."

Your kidding right 2 1/2 months and your impatient? :) Mine were a year before they spawned.

The eggs from this last spawn hatched last night. Got a 100% hatch and no fatalities. I estimate there's 175 to 200 fry from this batch. My last hatch 11 days ago was similar and I've only lost 3 fry from that batch. That batch is going through meta right now and are on bbs. I'm running out of tanks!!

Just an update that everything is going great! My recent hatches have been 98% successful and the fry are making it past 5 days with very few losses. I'm having to plan for expansion with so many tanks going now.

I presently have 4 half-gallon jars set up for rotifers. I'm doing a little bit of experimenting with water changes, harvesting amounts, and cleanings to see what is the best method for production. They provide plenty of rotifers for my hatches. I have a slow amount of air coming into the jars, just enough to barely circulate the water.

The side "jar" is actually a small circular container that I'm also experimenting with for my hatches. As you can see, it has the blackout "curtain" on it and contains about 150 newly hatched fry.

Looking good!! Now everyone is asking you how to set up!

Yep, getting lots of pm's for advice. But, again, that's how I learned, especially from your helpful advice. Thank you!
