First time successfully hatching clownfish eggs last night!!! I started with about a hundred eggs. On the first night after being put in the hatching tank, about 5 of the eggs popped off the pot and ended up on the bottom of the tank i'm guessing due to too much bubbling. On the second night (last night) by 11:30pm about 5-10 had hatched. Some were sitting on the bottom of the tank and darting upwards occasionally. Some were swimming around normally. I have no heater in a 5.5g tank with a temp of about 76-78F (ambient temp). I decided not to add a heater after the first time I tried hatching and the heater malfunctioned heating up to 95F. I have a light over the tank just barely adding light to one corner of the tank. I added some green water to tint and some rotifers last night. I'm going to add some more rotifers today when I go to check them. I'm hoping all of them hatched out by now. Can't wait to see!!!

Congrats...they are cute. Not as cute as seahorse fry...but close! I hope they continue to do well. Now you have to keep us updated as they grow up :) Everyone loves baby pictures.

Its a zoo in here!!! Just got the stands today right in the middle of applying epoxy. The stands are a great place to let the epoxy cure for the next week!

It took two days to painter tape all the edges, then it will be two days to epoxy. That's 4 days for these 40 tanks and there is 80 for this job! Thankfully Brian is running the show!!!

Another one side of one tank done! Thanks Brian!!!
