Broodstock Larvae systems?

Broodstock Larvae systems?

Postby downbydasea » Thu Jan 03, 2013 9:16 am

Just curious, I know the general opinion is to seperate the broodstock system from the Larvae system, my question is what in your opinion are the main disadvantages of incorporating them together?
I am experimenting with this technique and really looking for points to keep an eye on.

The plan is 4-10 gallon broodstock tanks on the same filtration system as 6-5.5 gallon tanks.
The return lines for the Larvae will go through a UV sterilizer other then that the filtration will be the same for both.

Any thoughts would be much appreciated.
Thanks
James

Yes, sorry for not being specific, Clowns are what I am refering to.
Details of system would be 4 broodstock pairs in the 4-15g tanks. With 6-5.5g larva tanks, the specifics of the process are for another topic, however the larva will be caught and transfered from the brood tank into larva tanks and grown out to 30days then moved to a dedicated growout sytem with its own seperate filtration system.

How would you manage the rotifers and the phyto to stay withing the larvae tanks if the water is recirculating to and from the main filtration system??

I'd go with 10g larval tanks. I don't think smaller is a good idea unless you clowns make really small nests. To each their own though.
