So I'm down to about 14 eggs from the original 40ish.. good news is you can really see them developing! See the orange hue and also two black dots where the eyes are!

I have hatched and raised fry before. Dont remove the eggs from the tank. Let them hatch in the tank and then take the fry out. U have to keep an eye on how many days after the lay the eggs do they hatch. I always leave the eggs in the tank so that the clownfish can take care of them.

On day 8 turn off your powerheads and any other pumps,kep the tank in total darkness,not even the tv on,shine a torch over the tank about 45-60 mins after lights out and you should see the fry,then syphon them out with some air hose.
