I'm hoping to have a good batch hatch and survive so I know for sure what I'll have.

No way.Making an intespecific hybrid has no way back,you won´t obtain pure species again.

Luis A M, hope you are right and if they produce something different is better right.
They spawned a good clutch this time and they were about 60% hatched last night and hope the rest will hatch tonight.
Do you know how long I have to wait for the Fry to grow to be able tell what they are?

Sorry, I didn't check back to this forum for awhile. last year I managed to raise the first 2 batchs and only about 40 survived from 2 batches. I got about 20 Snowflake and the rest are Oscillaries and True Perc.
For the last 9 months I was unable to keep any fry to survive past 10 days. Most of the babies started to die on the second day and all died by the 4 or 5 day. Sometime some of the babies passed Meta Phase but all died by the 9 or 10 days.
I'm very much frastration righ now and do not know why I could not raise them pass 7 or 10 days.

i had the same issue when i first started to raise clowns.
did you enrich rotifers, and BBS? if not, this might be the issue.

Supperfish, Thank You for your help, I'm not sure what your mean by enrich rotifers.
I feed the Fry first with rotifers and after the 4 or 5th days add/mix BBS and rotifers. Fry still died before 10 days, sometime I did have only one survive.

i start feeding BBS(enriched with rotigrow or selcon) within the first 24 hours, try that. add a little everytime. if they eat well, add a little more.also make sure you use newly hatched bbs everyday.
also whats ur temperature. lower temperature => lower growth rate => lower survive rate.

Thanks Superfish,
I keep temperature between 81-83.
It's been a long time and finally I have one batch that pass 20 days old, hoping they will make it through this time.
I have difficult time to keep my systiem Nirate NO3 below 200 PPM, any advice is greatly appreciated.
