    Raising clownfish

    Hey guys, just thought I’d share what I’ve been doing for the last year or so. Right now I have regular ocellaris and frostbites breeding. From the frostbites I get frostbite, Wyoming white, snowflake, davinchi, regular, etc. This is a mixture from the two pairs. I have several other pairs that haven’t bred yet but I’m hoping they do soon.

    Those are neat. How big are the aquariums are you using? How old are the fry in your pictures?

    Those are in 10 gallon aquariums plumbed into a system with a protein skimmer and a K1 moving bed filter.
    Those are about 5 months old.
    Since you are from Nashville I guess you've heard of Aquatic Critter. I've sold some to them and will probably take these there. I have several other stores in the area wanting them also but I need to ramp up production first.

    Mike, I know Aquatic Critter well, and have been doing business with them for about 20 years. You must be in the Nashville area as well since you have sold them some of your fish. Chris is a good guy. I love his store! I am actually in Goodlettsville, just north of Nashville.
    I know "Finding Nemo" made clownfish very popular and had even heard that for a while the demand was so great that pet stores had trouble keeping enough in stock. Yours look great!
    P.S.- Did you see this thread by Rainblood a few years ago? http://www.koiphen.com/forums/showth...roon-Clownfish

    Thanks guys.

    I have been going to AC for probably 20 years also. Chris is a really good guy and always goes out of his way to help us out. I saw your picture on your website and I bet I've ran into you there. You look very familiar. I need to get some plants from you next year.

    I actually have 6 lightning maroon clownfish. You can get them for much cheaper now. I got some of mine for around $60. I have 2 pairs and 2 that wouldn't pair up so I had to seperate them. They both turned into females then. I was going to pair them up with something else but I'm thinking about selling them since I'm running out of room.
