    Thanks. Mom is a true percula and Dad is a fancy ocellaris. Unfortunately the rock they are on is huge so I can't take it out. My other tank is empty right now, but I don't know how to raise them anyway.

    Gotta love the places those darn guys lay! That sounds like a beautiful pair you got there too Check your pm's, if you do want to try and catch them, if they are still on there today, tonight, go to the corner of your tank and shine a flashlight. It will attract the larvae and all you need to do is scoop them out with a net and you've got most of the larvae that was laid!

    if you cant remove the rock look at doing a larval snagger lemme see here.. digging up ole links

    Chad Vossen makes a very nice one out of acrylic, he can be found pretty easy over at the marine breeding initiative, I used to use a combination of both mine and his with great success though I've since moved on from snagging clown larvae you can also use a flashlight and a cup and do the ole scoop method if you up for a late night

    Thanks guys, you've motivated me to try and give it a shot. If I collect them and put them in a different tank, do I just feed them brine shrimp?

    Look at my presentation I posted earlier from the meeting, It goes into detail on how to raise the fry. Usually you want to try rotifers first, then BBS after the first few days.

    Its fun to raise em. I kept the perculas I raised in a 10gallon and did water changes once or twice a week. Am sure some of us will buy em from you or you can take em to an LFS for credit.

    I would love buying 3 or 4. My clown instincts says these will live successfully, and my clown's parent insticts says its time for them to adopt. ;D

    Well, this batch is gone, guess I had to do it last night. I'll have to try in a couple weeks when they lay again. I think I might try and build the larval snagger so I can get as many as possible. Thanks everybody.

    Not a problem! Usually we all eventually make some mistake As far as a larval snagger, I'd go with JRC's recommendation. It's relativly cheap and works GREAT!
