    a while back i bought two small clowns and it looks like they have become a pair. i am looking too one day maybe see if i can get them to have fry. ive seen a lot on tanks for them too breed in but i am still unclear on what to do with the fry once they are born. i know some people siphon them out but i would like too se if ther is a less stressfull way to move them. and what filtration should i use for the fry tank.

    Filtration wise use a sponge filter and do lots of water changes

    The sponge filter uses an air line to operate, but if you want to add another it might be too much movement for the newborn fry. With the parents put in a small ceramic flower pot or a piece of wall or floor tile so they can lay their eggs on it.

    No, just be sure to get a small young Clownfish.

    My .02 make sure you have plenty of Rotifers on hand and look into hatching your own brine shrimp
