He really didn't seem that distressed about it.

Yeah, just panicked. I was under the impression that they all hatched on the same day; so when I saw one, I figured the others should have come after waiting that much longer. I didn't want to shine the light directly on them, so I thought I saw a lot less eggs with no larvae.

 

It was only after I had moved the rock that I noticed that most of the eggs were still there. I'm afraid that I messed up again this time too. But I'm still hoping that some of the others will still hatch.

One cute little swimmer is a start :) keep an eye on the rest and you may catch them when they hatch.

Seabass, when I raised my fry, I only kept 1-2" of water in the 5 gallon tank. IT is much easier to get the density of rotifer that the larvae need in a smaller amount of water. I vacumed the tank 4-5 Xs a day (usually after they had depleted some of the rotifer) and added new made salt water after each vacume. That way they were getting constant WCs too.

Hey hey hey, so I saw this movie one time about a clownfish and all of his clownfish eggs got eaten BUT ONE.

 

Seriously, if ever a clownfish was ACTUALLY MEANT TO BE NAMED FOR THIS FILM, this is that clownfish. It will be the clownfish actually deserving of the name Nemo.

 

So as cliche as it sounds, I totally think you should name the little dude Nemo. ESPECIALLY if he lives.

 

Nemo, the fish who lived. (lets cross stories while we're at it)

He's still swimming around.

Vlangel, good tip on the water level!

I'm shocked just how dirty the tank got in one day. I mean there is just one little guy in there. :wacko:

Nothing yet. Sorry papa. But it was about this time yesterday that the one hatched, so I'm still looking/hoping.

I was hoping that a few more would hatch, but I just checked the eggs. They didn't hatch and have turned white; all were lost. So it's just the one that made it.

:) He does need a name. And being alone, you can't mistake him for someone else. Of course, if all goes well, he'll eventually become a she. I'm kind of thinking about Finley (aka the lone wolf, story of a real Nemo).
