55 gallon...right now i have a community tank with a lot of live rock, crushed coral mixed with sand, and some decorative dead coral. i have 5 damsels, a clown, s. tang, and an angel. oh, and more than enough filtration. i would obviously take all other fish out if i wanted to breed something, but for now i'm enjoying the random fish i come across.
Clownfish seem more than happy to breed in a tank ! There are a lot of articles on thier husbandry out there . It's common to get clownfish fry with irregular patterns on them from tank bred clutches . Many clownfishes available in shops today are tank bred and will have this characteristic .
Another fish to consider is the Fridmani Pseudochromis they will breed in captivity but are often intolerant of each other .
Be sure to have sponge filters going .The fry are very small at first and will feed on insuforia .
the easiest fish to breed is a CLOWN hands down, really if you get a pair they will eventually mate and hopefully have babies, if i was you i would get 2 clowns your choice of what kind and just give them a couple months, then you can use all different techniques...
The Breeders guide is a wonderful book and very helpful in setting -up your breeding fishery. I have 3 different clown breeding setups and a bangai carnial breeding setup at the moment. they have only been up for about 3 months and I have not had any luck getting any babies yet. but I am hopeful.
In addition we are also attempting baby brine setup so we can feed all of these babies when they get here.
something REALLY interesting would be hybridizing fish.
orchid dottyback+striped dottyback=indigo dottyback
neon cleaner goby+goldstripe cleaner goby=blue and yellow cleaner goby
a few other species have been hybridized, but only extremely rarely.
