Pregnant clown?

I have a female clownfish with a clearly distended stomach, I was wondering what I should do about all the fry. Will the other clowns just eat them all? Should I try raising them, I have absolutely no Idea how. Help is appreciated.

I have a 150 with 5 clowns and one yellow tang, and two anemones. I think there are two females, although I can't tell for sure.

you can find a lot about breeding clowns at this link,
http://reefcentral.com/forums/showth...95#post1741095

The fish will eat the babies unless removed. But dont worry, once they start breeding, it will be a normal thing. So if you cant attempt to raise them this time, you can always do it in a couple of weeks. Im jealous, i want to try.

Good luck, and post pics with your progress if you follow through.

Now that i think of it I'll just skip it, Lighting and feeding the fry is a nightmare.
