Clownfish breeding

How difficult is it to breed clownfish? Would you just need a fry tank for them to hatch and then another tank for them to grow? Obvs need alot more equipment I'm just saying tank wise

It would need to be set up and cycled like any other species only tank. I believe the fry are hard to feed though. You would need to consider multiple species only tanks and specialised feeding for each of the fry stages. Lots of energy and time. Is this for a business idea? Or for fun? Unless its designer clowns I can't see a profit in breeding regular clowns when they are quite cheap to buy, all that time and effort raising frys...

No I wasn't planning on doing it..my clowns right now are showing signs of establishing sex so you never know what could happen and there is a lfs I could sell them to..I was just saying in case they actually became a mated pair and started to spawn

That sounds fun! Clowns are my fave. I don't have any yet, just a sticker that actually looks pretty real except it doesn't move! We inadvertently breed Guppies in our FW. Kinda wish they'd stop!! HA!

I would be careful moving them. Ive heard that even a relocation can disrupt their mated bond

Another really easy to breed marine species is the Bangaii cardinal fish. They are mouthbrooders.

I really love those fish, so pretty! IDK anything about them though. I got my clownfish pair the other day. They're precious!! Never more than a few inches from each other all over the tank, they're like synchronized swimmers... they dig holes in the sand at nite to rest together.

Excuse the bubbles in my background. I've still gotta finish smoothing it out.
