Domino Damsels

Postby sazmo » Sat May 23, 2009 1:56 pm

I have been searching the site but cant seem to find any information regarding the breeding of these fish.
I currently have some eggs due to hatch on Monday and would like any assistance anyone could offer?

I know there is a paper written about the culture of one of the humbugs (same genus) but i dont remember all the details well.

I think you will probably need wild plankton and at least rotifers, S strains perhaps.

No chance of wild plankton over here - not without pollution :cry:
The owner of these eggs manages to get them to day 3 with rotifers alone but we are hoing to extend this somehow.

Congratulations Sazmo - must be something in the water in East Anglia!!
I've enquired about getting some Brachionus rotundiformis from Germany, but they're currently out of stock - I'll let you know if/when I get some

That would be fantastic.
Lost a lot of the damsels today as they hatched earlier than expected and there was still a powerhead in the tank. :evil:
Dottybacks are still hatching so will know numbers in the morning. Also a nest of cinammons just been pulled tonight.
:D
Fingers crossed for one lot

Here is the reference for the paper. Wild plankton, big tanks and apparently great success.

Great to see you around,Witt! 8)
Was that a hawaian paper?.I think it was available on line in a State public site...I remember I was very confused that the authors didn´t make reference to the larvae being hatched with unpigmented eyes,almost pro-larval? :?
