    Breeding True Percula Clownfish! Hi everyone, I have a pair of True Percula Clownfish that are laying eggs! I really want them to hatch, any advice? They laid the eggs on a round ceramic frag plug, so I could make a "egg" tank if that is the right way to do it. Any advice? Help! I really...

    Hey guys, I have had a pair of BC for close to 6 months now. Repeatedly i tried to add more to the group but every time they would chase them away or try and kill them, so i believed they were a pair. Yesterday i was proven right! The larger of the two, Male as i have read, is holding. I was...

    So my tank has produced baby Margarita and Banded Trochus snails.. But so far that's it.. Until today.. I noticed my Banggai doing what appeared to be "hiccuping" after the lights went out tonight.. On closer inspection they were eating.. As were the Chalk bass, and the Chromis.. But feeding on...

    I started with 4 trochus snails around 7 months ago. A few weeks ago I started to see babies everywhere. I read that they need very specific diets and so they would die off, while they were still small enough to get eaten quickly etc., and not cause any problems in the tank. Well now I'm...
  5. Livestock Breeding and Propagation
    About a week ago I saw one of my banggais "zip over" to another banggai and do a little shake. I saw this happen several times throughout that particular day. A little research and I found out that it was the mating dance. How cute! Now, the male has puffy cheeks and I see eggs inside his...

  7. Livestock Breeding and Propagation
    Okay, so today I started taking my tank down. I got rid of everything in the tank. Or so i thought, There were still some rocks and macro algae, in the tank. And i realized that there was an emerald crab still in there. I believe it is a female as it is carrying little black eggs under her body...

  9. Reef Fish
    Just noticed today that the male had a swollen jaw, and about 8hours later I see tiny tadpole like microscopic babies swimming around the tank. I do not have a breeder tank so I am sad to say that all the inhabitants are eating the fry. :cry::cry::cry:But none the less I am happy that my fish...

    Well a few weeks back I saw my Emerald Crab doing something weird with its belly. It flared it out like an accordion and was going Claw in/out on it. I figured it was just cleaning or something. FFW to a few days ago and I found a hitch hiker (or I thought it was). Baby crab couldnt figure...

    My clowns have been sort of nippy and aggressive when I feed the brains and blastamusso. The other day I noticed why. There are a 1/2 dozen fry in the crevices and tunnels of my rock. They are still there today so maybe they will grow and survive? What do I feed them? :beer: In the mean time...
