Tank Raised Clowns

Does anybody breed clownfish?

Matthew 22:37-39
37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b]

I have made a run with some clarkii clowns but my turn out was not as good as I would have liked it to be. I know a couple people who breed them and banghais and it requires a larger system to do it proper. First things first and you need ot get yourself some phyto plankton cultures going to feed the rotifers cultures, and ultimately brine shrimps that need to be sifted by micron to assure the fry do not die from ingesting to large a exoskeletoned prey item.

Are you planning on doing dome breeding?

I have seen perculas and tomatoes. They seemed to have washed out colors and don't get as big as the wild caught fish. And there was something about a disease called Brooklynella...

I must say I have not been able to tell that they are washed out especially considering the most fancy strains out including the lighting clown and the Picasso clowns are all captive bred,many stores carry high quality captive bred clowns now.Brooklynela is one of the worst things to get when you have a system if clowns,comes on fast and treatments are harsh.

Clownfish - Sea and Reef Aquaculture Just to show off some of those colors badxgillen mentioned.

Clownfish Breeding Breeding article. Having never done it, I can't say how good it is. I've read it before and it seemed good to my newbish viewpoint.

Thank you for those links! I had no idea that different strains were being produced and perpetuated.
