    I have a pair that were tank bred together and live harmoniously together. How do I know when they will be ready too breed? And how do I breed them? Any advice would be appreciated :)

    Looks like I'm going to need to get a butt load more LR before it happens. Thanks for the link tho, it's very detailed on the step-by-step process. :)

    Alas, I dont have the link anymore either. But it can take years for clowns to lay eggs after pairing up. Ive had my clowns together now for 3 years and they have never laid eggs.

    I've had a pair laying eggs for years but carrying it to the next level by raising the fry just seems like too much sugar for a dime. So about twice a month my tank gets a midnight snack:mrgreen:

    Haha that's terrible :p. I talked to my LFS guy and he said he'd be willing to do trades for the juvi's when I finally get them started. He'd either trade me for other fish, corals, or cash. So, it'd be worth the effort for me just to help his business out a bit.
