    I wanted to try and save some space and try a concept out. Im running six ten gallon aquariums that all have the ability to pull out from their stand. These tanks are going to be used as breeder tanks for clownfish for the time being.

    It really helps with catching the fish as well as cleaning the aquariums. Pulling an aquarium out and siphoning the waste off of the bottom of the tanks directly into the filter socks makes my life a heck of alot easier!

    I bet! I'm always bumping the cabinetry above my tanks!

    That is an awesome idea. You will definitely have to post photos once you start breeding. What sort of clowns are you getting?

    That looks brillant!! Well done :)
    Did you have the shelf made to order?

    Could you build me one please ;). My clowns are breeding like crazy I have over 300 fry in my 60 gallon breeder. I love the fact you can pull them out to clean them.

    Very nice set up! I had something very similar with 90gs except the stands were iron. The filter on the bottom looks excellent! Great work. I'm interested to see more.

    Do they need an anemone to breed in?

    Mine lay there eggs on the rock below my LTA but than again most lay there eggs where they feel safe so no they do not need one to breed. They just need the right conditions in the tank it took mine 4 times before they got the hang of it. I plan on letting the batch they just laid to be raised in the tank seeing my 60 is overstocked as it is.

    I can't even imagine what you would do with that many. I hate giving fry I have raised away to dodgy LFS and poor owners who kill them before the week is out. But 300 is a lot :/ Live food I guess? :/

    Yes a lot of Live food mine started out on BB, Coepods, blackworms, diced up fresh clam,shrimp, and mussels. They are now getting fed NLS Thera A 0.05mm pellets and a special blend I found on a clown breeding site.
