Can I make my fry grow faster ?

Can I make my fry grow faster ?

Postby midjim » Tue Oct 14, 2014 6:03 am

As the title says, is there any tricks to get your clown fry to grow faster to sale size. My fish seem to grow slow, I have percula and ocellaris that seem to take about eight months till there large enough to sell. They are fed on spectrum pellets, ocean nutrition flake, sometimes live baby brine shrimp. Any help would be appreciated.

I guess frequent feedings,as with an automatic feeder :wink:
Ocellaris IME sometimes are ready at 4 mo.,but other times they need 6 mo.My percs grow faster than oc.,other breeders found the opposite to happen.
Larval raising in a BRT with 24 hr light,makes them grow much faster,meta at 7 days,giving a headstart push. :wink:

Luis when do you take them off the 24 hour light cycle?

No,I don´t keep clown larvae at 24L,it was just a casual observation.But if you want to try it,do it until meta.
