Clownfish are among the most popular fish that beginning marine fish breeders attempt to reproduce, however they may not be the easiest. Although their larvae are larger than most, and therefore easier to raise, it can take years for a clownfish pair to begin spawning.
That’s why master marine fish breeder Matt Wittenrich, PhD recommends using bundoon blennies Meiacanthus bundoon for a beginner’s first project. Bundoon blennies have large larvae that are relatively easy to raise and can even handle less-than-perfect water quality.
Check out the mating dance in Matt’s video of his Spawning Bundoon Blennies.
