    I bought two perculas, they're a little over an inch and 1/4, at what age/size do they usually decide what sex they're going to be? And what do you need to do to set up breeding them?

    Hello All, Check out this video I made of my clownfish's 1st ever spawn. I've waited 5 years for it. I got some great footage and I hope it is informative to alot of people who are curious about the spawning processes through larval release: http://youtube.com/watch?v=KVfPNMnr80I

    Was Looking For A Web Site Or Something That Could Explain The Different Types Of Clown Fish. Maybe With A Bunch Of Pics For Reference. If You Are Wondering Why It Is Because My Buddy Thinks He Is A "know-it-all" And I Need Pics To Prove Him Wrong!!! So Any Input Would Help. Thanks

    We have a pair of Sebae clowns that have laid some eggs in the 120G. We were wondering if anyone could give some advice on how to catch and maybe raise some of the eggs. We cannot move the rock that they are laid upon because that is where the anemone is attached. We do have the book by Joyce...

    this has been a hot topic lately. For confusion purposes, we are going to call all types of anemones.............. "anemones" in this poll. Pest anemones do not count. Please refrain from saying that it is stupid to generically call ALL anemones "anemones" because i dont care. :p...

    I thought the Borneman weekend went really well. I was imagining more people would show up yesterday (we had about 80 people show up when Ron Shimek was here), but there were right about 49 people there yesterday (counting me, 3 of my students, and a friend of one of my students), so the...

    I bought an Emperor 280 and a Red Sea Prizm Protein Skimmer (not the deluxe). The filter was $66 and the Protein Skimmer was $150. I didn't really know much and I was just excited to start a reef tank in my 50 gallon tank. In looking online I see that the protein skimmer not only sells for $75...

    Has anyone in the club raised clowns? I went down last night to see my clowns had eggs. I know that in the community tank it would never happen(to many scavengers) but has anyone raised them in their QT or in a tank by themselves?

    I am trying to make a pair of false percula clownfish and i have the two clownfish is there anything else i need to do?:rolleyes:
  18. TCMAS
    I'm sure this has been asked before but.....Can you safely mix two different species of clowns in one tank. Specifically, a medium gold stripe marron and a percula.

    Does anyone have any books on breeding clownfish that would like to part with? Just thought I would check to see if anyone had one before buying one online. Really looking for "Clownfishes" by Joyce Wilkerson. thanks:wavey:
  20. The THINK Tank
    I was reading in Joyce Wilkerson's book on breeding clownfish that in the baby's rearing tanks you cant really reasonably achieve perfect water quality so you have to shoot for acceptable water quality, she goes on to say that if you keep it less than 20 ppm (she is talking about clownfish...
