Help with breeding

Postby the7ferret » January 18th, 2006, 6:04 am

Since I hope that my clowns will spawn I have an extra 10 gal That I would like to use for the fry.

As for filtration though I can get a pump setup and use my reg tank water for the fry and just recycle it through my filter system on my big tank? Or will the live food end up in my reg tank and be an issue amongst other things

Rotifers won't be able to swim against the current so the flow rate needs to be really slow. I use a sponge filter to keep the rotifers in the fry tank and that seemed to work.

just do small water changes every day, and have an airstone going just enough to keep everything from settling
If it lives in water...we can make more!
