    Clownfish Eggs, A closer look with microscopy

    Hi just sharing photos on my current project XD
    Currently i am trying to breed the perculas under lab conditions and fining out what triggers them to spawn. Its my final year project i am doing for my school =3

    well got some eggs from a pair and did a microscopy on them. So just thought it would be nice to share them =3

    under the microscope you can really see their heartbeat and all =D very beautiful.

    The blacks spot you see are pigmentation that will eventually give the clowns their colour. the orange thing in the middle is the egg sac to give the larvae nutrients.


    if you see their"tail" that is the adhesive part where the egg is attached to a substrate.

    Fantastic pictures, thanks for posting.
    There is a well known independent breeder in England who i have spoken to who would possibly help you out. He is the owner of MG Marines in Dudley, West Midlands UK.
    He has been in print a number of times the last i know of was a large piece in Practical Fishkeeping.
    By the way he told me that clowns will breed constantly if food is available, also they would breed in a dirty puddle if you let them, raising the fry is the hard part.
    Good luck.
