clowns have laid eggs

Postby les82 » Wed 22 Apr, 2009 9:35 pm

Just wondering what i can do to make sure they survive, Or will the parents look after them?
A bit about the tank, its 7'x20"x20" and I have had it for bout 6 months. but I bought it with all the occupants 2nd hand. I have two anemones which the clowns host, 5 chromis, a blue tang, 2 damsels and a snowflake eel. + a heap of hermit crabs and snails.
what are the chances of the babies surviving?
Thanks for any help I am still kind of new to saltwater

Unless you set up a dedicated tank to raise them, zero I'm afraid. Check out marinebreeder.org to talk to people more knowledgeable than us on this topic.
