    thats about how often I get the eggs. Mine have been spawning for 8 months and I have yet to see any fry. I was within 1 hour 1 time. I think I would be killed if I started another fish area in my house.:bounce: Congrats on the spawning. You should see a new batch in 10-14 days.

    :(

    I hope not. Although since I have been out of town all this week, I haven't had an opportunity to order all the materials I need to start growing the baby clown foods. I was hoping I'd be able to try to raise not the next batch of spawn, but the batch after the next. By that time, I should have stuff set up and ready to go.

    Nature, she be a cruel mistress...

    So you are going to go with the formula rather than breast feeding? What kind of mother are you? :mrgreen:

    My maroons laid eggs all the time, nothing ever happened though, the male would guard them until they shriveled and died.

    I know that breastfeeding would be the healthiest choice, but damn, I just couldn't get the nipple in their mouths! WON'T. FIT.
