I hope all is well When we last spoke after the Michigan Conference I told you that I was going to try some fish breeding (thanks to Frank) and I was thinking about trying to do some corals as well.
Since my Pocillopora are already going at it on their own I'd like to try another type. What would you suggest that I try? I have a fairly wide variety to choose from, Euphyllia being my favorites. I've read your articles on RC and there was an article in FAMA magazine this month about how they're doing it at the Omaha Zoo. It's a little vague in certain areas so I'm hoping you can clarify it a bit for me.
I understand capturing the larvae with the 800 micron bags and seeding small tiles, etc. ... but I'm not clear about having the bags over the colonies all the time or only at night?
I'm also wondering about stocking a breeding tank. Should I only have one species? How many small colonies per tank?... assuming a 10-20 gallon tank.
If you were going to attempt this, how would you set up a 20G long tank for instance?
