Yah I've been breeding clowns for about 2 years. I only breed every forth or fifth lay just enough to show friends and family what I can do. Since this pair is what it is, I bought the pair to breed. I was actually thinking of throwing in the towel until I started talking to pickle and he inspired me to get back at it. Low and behold after a year and a half they started laying the other night.

I believe doni only gets a few per hatch but the genetics for a recessive trait to become dominant are much stronger in f2 then f1 so I expect more that that. This is the first time they have breed for me so I will not find out for about another month or so. The first hatch will feed the tank and after that I will hatch the next three to see where I stand with percentages

Maybe we can make a barter in the future. My sno babys for you sno babys

 

These are not occs they are percs. Simillar but not the same. I am hoping for a lot of picassos and will be exstatic if I get a few snocassos.

Please feel free to ask any questions I love to answer them.

Making it through meta has more to do with feeding and water quality than anything else. From as many clutches as I've reared it seems the hatch is the hardest part. Keeping them alive after day 2 is the easy part for me.

My pair of tmc snoflakes after three years decided to kill each other. They were beautiful and cost me an arm and a leg. I would recommend not buying the pair for breeding only but to buy them because you will enjoy em'.

Keep us updated on them i really want to see how the babies turn out, I got a picasso about a month ago and it was my first ORA clownfish (which also costed me a pretty penny) with that much white and wow he is cool he's only about and inch though so he's still young and his black is starting to fill in. But their really cool with all the white and black on em.

I have a grade a ora named poka. Dot was another snocasso from doni that unfortunately did not make it. Both had orange dots on the sides it was really cool. Now the ora is paired with a b&w.

I really love my ora platinums and sea quest wyoming white. Almost totally white with just a smidge of orange on theior snouts. Really cool

Oh thanks for the compliment. And my fish look good to ;). I love the coloring of the super barring on the clowns. I even like naked clowns. I guess you can say I like odd balls.

following along as well.

 

if the baby's are reguar piccasso's or even misbared perc's and breed when they are adults could they have snow's because the gene is recessive or does it not work that way.

 

interesting, i would like to play with some clowns in the future.

Yes there is a chance that the recessive will show as dominant. Just like red hair is a recessive but in some groups shows as a dominant feature from years of "breeding". If I remember my genetics classes its. Xx,xa,xa,aa where aa is 2 recessive traits mixing. Its been a while though so I could be way off.

Just wondering what do you breed in a 200 gallon tank? Just think how many clownfish you could fit in an 200 gal.

its 6 -20 gallon tanks with a 60 gallon sump all plumbed together, has the possibility for another 6-20 gallon tanks to make it a 300 gallon system, i run a reeflo 200 skimmer with upgraded needle wheel rated for about 300 gallons with a med to high biolad.
