Clownfish breeding

Hi All,

My clowns started laying eggs and my kids want to try to raise them. We have most what we need so far and need some help with the rotifer culture. I am unable to find the food for the rotifers in town and i am wondering if anyone had an idea of an alternative to ordering the food online which is very expensive due to shipping.

Thanks

You can feed the rotifers phytoplankton available at most saltwater fish stores.

Great! Is it basically the same idea just to keep the water green?

Pretty much! I haven't done it but I've been researching it just in case any of my clowns start laying eggs. 🙂

Is it best to try to culture my own phyto in your experience?

I'd just buy it unless you want to have buckets culturing things everywhere. 🙂

Google Pickle's guide to breeding clownfish. I found it very informative and understandable.
