Only with my first batch have they survived metamorphosis and that was like 3 months ago but then when I went to switch that batch from rotifers to other food, the food was rancid and killed them =(   

but the parrents have been laying eggs every two weeks sense If you wanted to start a phyto/rotifer culture Id give you some larvae to try when they hatch again... trying to get some success rate eventually even if its not at my house

I'd have to go look it up to be sure but M occurs at about day 7-9 and it's extremely hard on them.

Nick those are the coolest pics of larvae I've ever seen. Especially the one looking at the Copepod for lunch. Thanks for sharing. Are these Amphiprion Ocellaris?

Awesome Nick, Your Photo skills just keep getting better as well as your reef keeping.  Clap
