Cool, but so freaky, so how long did you manage to rear them for?

Super pictures, thanks :)

I'm likely to be gifted with a couple of spawning Chromis viridis this weekend. Tagging along with interest.

Christian,

We only got them to day 10. They were eating a bit but we had trouble getting enough small nauplii in the larval tanks. But that said we've improved some things. Not sure when I'll get egg again. Most likely we will move to Sargent Majors as a model species to test out the plankton and rearing method.

I'm using a sony cybershot with a Martin Microscope adapter. The trick is that I have a high end Zeiss Sterescope and some very nice fiberobtic lights. Pictures are really not that good, I'm not happy with the depth of field or the focus.
