I thought the point of the pot was to keep it right side up and hope they lay on the inside so that you can remove it from the tank full of water so that the eggs stay under water the whole time? I am wanting to start this in my new fish room.

i have seen it done that way in my case i never planned on taking the pot out.i wanted to transfer the fry without stressing out the parents.just a personal feeling i suppose.good luck with your venture.

Ken they look good,I just traded mine in to my local LFS for £5/fish,they sell them for £19.They all look good in the LFS.You can take the pot out without stressing the parents as long as you have another pot to swap it with.Your clowns have good markings,make sure you keep a few for yourself!!

David they love the flake.i use a OMEGA ONE veggie flake for a the main food it has a 37 percent protein level.in addition i supply HIKARI frozen baby brine shrimp gut loaded with EPA,DHA oil and vitamin c plus and b12.i also picked up some CYCLOPEZEE which is a micro crustacean grown in the artic waters.it is 60 percent protein and high in fat.finally every couple weeks i do up a batch of brine shrimp which i gut load with SELCON.lots of variety.
