Breeding (Is it just a dream)

One of my long term goals would be to breed clown fish
Is it possible? Has anyone had success?
Looking forward to your success stories

I guess I could take this one of two ways! No one knows how or wants to breed or I'm a glue head for asking

it is possible and i know some very skilled aquarist that have successfilly breed and raised the fry. the problem with breeding sw fish (for most fish anyway) is that the babies, start out and move through larvel stage whereas most fw hatch into small fish. In order to raise the larvel clowns u need to grow their food which is plankton, rotifers, and baby brine. This is time consuming and difficult, along with this they need to be raised in a safe enviorment so that the larvel clowns arent killed by fish or inverts or a conventional filter. I am aware of a book which has everything to do with clowns but am not aware of how well it discusses breeding.

Thanks for the input and the link.
Guess success stories are few and far between
Always nice to have a goal
