this is the book I was advise to read but didn't. Clownfish by Joyce Wilkerson
I refered to these 2 threads for additional tips http://www.nano-reef.com/forums/inde...owtopic=229199 and http://www.marinebreeder.org/phpbb/v...p?f=140&t=2213

happy reading,although I didn't use the funnel method I feel the bucket way better.

Hey David I was wondering how you set up your breeding tanks I've looked all over the place trying to find a good way to set up breeding tanks with grow out systems for the fry and it's extremely hard to find post about the tanks set up for breeding.

I built the whole system,its pretty easy,the way I've done it is so the fry will hatch and then grow until ready to ship out in the same system,Most people say to hatch the fry in a small round fish tank,this is only good for feeding the fry,PWC's in a fry tank can be a massive killer of the fry,The way I set mine up is they hatch into an old salt bucket with a very slow water supply into it,cut a square out of the bucket below the water level and cover it with some filter media,the bucket is secured within a fish tank which is plumbed to a sump and the growout tanks,normal pwc's can be done at a 10% rate helping with the survival of the fry.

An updated photo of some of the clowns now

If I didn't have 10 other hobbies/projects all going at the same time I think this would be very cool to do. Just don't think I would be able to keep up with it. One SW tank, 2 Ponds and all the woodworking and home improvement projects keep me busy enough. LOL
