HI Lars

Very nice I have always wondered abotu this species, i had some joy with Amblygobius phalanea once upon a time.

Can i ask how big are the larvae? will they eat rotifers as a first food?

Thanks

Thanks Suzy :wink:
Christian, they are verrry small, maybe 2mm long, but very thin, the mouth is small and the distance between the eyes is also very small. I´ll try rotifires but I don´t think this will be successful. At the moment I don´t have any food.
It´s annoying, why can´t I post pictures anymore? :evil: I Took pictures wich compare the rainfordi larve with a newborn ocellarris black

Have you tried feeding them phyto? That's smaller than rotifers.

Bit hard for me to exactly tell for the vid
But they look similar in size to a dottyback larvae
I would try rots in large numbers in green water and see what happens
it looked like it was trying to strike for food in the vid
Maybe worth a shot

Hi Ben
No, they are smaller than dottybacks. I bred the yellow assessor and I think assessor are te thame size than pseudochromis, but the koumansetta are smaller.
In this video : http://youtu.be/K6Y8qEJ4QHc I compare the koumansetta with "normal" rots. I need a smaller strain :?
The behavior is not normal. I poured them in a petry dish to take the Video under the microsope and with bright light. I think the are shocked
