    Baby ocellaris

    Finally have a couple of babies make it through metamorphosis! It took 3 clutches for me to finally have sucuess, so wanted to share some learnings, others may already know but a couple of things that I think got me over the hump.

    - Blacking out 3 sides of tank
    - Leaving a light on 24 hrs a day through metamorphosis, this is so that it makes it easier for the fry to find food.
    - Not feeding them too much rotifers per feeding, did 100ml of sieved rotifer water 2-3 times a day.

    Hatched 10/15

    First stripe started to show on 10/29


    Second stripe 11/1
