    Do you have a copy of Joyce Wilkerson's book on clownfish breeding ?

    Great place to start.

    I assume you are aerating the eggs ???

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    I think feeding will be your biggest problem. Are you Culturing Rotifers for food?
    Check out
    Ocean Aquatics
    and
    Reef Crew

    Both these sites have info on breeding or sell breeding products

    Good Luck

    Feeding I would add the rotifers the day before they hatch, mix in your nannochlorpsis so the rotifers population can continue to expand.

    The eggs will hatch when the majority of them are silver tipped, and they may take more than one day to fully hatch out.

    If they are percs they can start being feed artemia on day 5 or 6, before metamorphosis try to ensure no egg shells are in the feed especially in the first couple of days.

    Sweet sound like your on your way.
    I have visited Ocean Aquatics when they have had perc fri. He keeps them in 5G tanks that all 4 sides are painted black. there is nothing else in the tank but the fri. Other than that I know nothing about fish breeding. I be very curious as to how things turn out.

    Good Luck
