Any luck on marine fish breeding

I've been away from this subject for quite some time. My recollection was only a few successful stories (Clown was the one I remembered). It's keeping fries properly feed after hatch was the killer.
Is this still true?
Thanks for sharing.

Success is measured by years, not by months.

Re: Any luck on marine fish breeding

Feeding is still a problem for the hobbiest.One of the employees at my #1 LFS breeds clowns with good success.
Banghia(kordon) cardinals are anothe popular fish(due to it being over caught).
Coral magazine(online) has a list or article almost every month on new fish being bred!They really (professionally) have come a long way and even breed what many of us would consider much more diffacult fish today.
I think the LFS guy raises his own rotifers which he says is the trick.There is a lot of work that goes into keeping cultures of live food active and not dying.
In the late 80's early 90's I had clowns that laid eggs all the time in my 135 reef.But I never got to see 1 free swimmer!Day 3 the orange eggs would be silverish and I could see the eyes and then GONE!I tried almost everything I could think of back then.I even rigged up a 10g in front of my 135 that had continous drip from 135 to 10 then to sump.Nothing worked for me then!

Re: Any luck on marine fish breeding

Thanks, Tom! What I meant "success" is with our Home tank setup, not at LFSs. For that I think we are still making no progress. About the same period (late 80s") I had several occasions my domino damsels lay eggs in the tank, hatched but all then eaten by a trigger. Before hatching the damsel pairs defended the eggs such that even the fearful green trigger could not get close.

Success is measured by years, not by months.

Aquatic life(member) just posted pics of his banghia cards!
Oliver is a college student.Not to shabby IMO!
The guy with clowns works at the LFS, he breeds the clowns at his home.We have a woman in our area who supplies all clowns(every kind) to all LFS.Photo of the cards near last post in this thread;
