The Lightning Project

The ongoing saga of the PNG Lightning Maroon Clownfish Breeding Project

So somehow a spawn simply got by me.  The wild pair moved where there nest was and I didn’t catch it until yesterday, 5-6-2015; this is their 54th spawn.  Their eggs continue to look very “small”, but they are remaining viable it would seem as these are at least 4 days old.  Meanwhile, a day prior, 5-5-2015, the Nebula Percs also happened to spawn.  I’m still itching to rear them to see what they produce!

This is a spawn of note; on the evening of March 17th, 2015, the wild pair of PNG Lightning Maroon Clownfish and her PNG White Stripe mate put down their 50th spawn in captivity.  It looks like a good one, so I think they might be back on track!

I’m also just noting that my Nebula Percs threw down  nest the evening before, March 16th ;)

Until April, I’m not starting any new rearing projects, so I’ve just been watching eggs for time.  The Lightning X Lightning pairs eggs were viable and went full term.  Hatch timing is interesting however. By Saturday, March 14th, the Nebulas (which are A. percula) had hatched out (spawned on the 5th); meanwhile the Lightning’s eggs were still present and eyed up even though they had spawned a day later.  This seems odds, as the hatch timings seem flipped from the norm. The eggs from Lighting X Lightning Spawn #7  were gone only on Sunday morning, March 15th. Being spawned in the 6th, this seems long; 9 days?  The parents are typically 6.

It’ll be interesting to see what happens on their next spawn.
