Anyone had any success with breeding clowns ? Mine have laid a fair amount of eggs . I was just wondering if it is worth trying to bring them on .

Hey there as long as you dont have any predatory egg eating fish or clean up crew  i would imagine your good to go and they will come on in good time! not personally had the privilege of breeding clowns yet but theirs alot of conflicting info around but i am sure there will be somone on here that will be able to guide you! Well done  and keep us all posted :-) GOOD LUCK :-)

Well done ,
First batch don’t always work , good news is you now have a breading pair of clowns and will lay more eggs , you will eventually get results , probably best let nature do it’s thing ,
Be nice to see some pics though

Do clownfish parents eat their own eggs or young?

Yeah they definitely eat the eggs sometimes.  Not sure about the young as mine never got that far  :umhum:
