Breeding techniques of some of the more common saltwater aquarium fish

I use a set up similar to the killi tank to breed egg-scatterers. I start with a layer of moss 2-3” deep in tank with whatever water I want (hard, soft, acid, etc…), and then put the females in for a few days to build up some eggs. I do a partial water change at the same time that I add the males, which is always in the evening just before turning off the lights. The only problem with spawning these fish over moss is that it is virtually impossible to see the eggs, so I choose to let the breeders stay in the tank for several days to spawn. Sometimes I will see larvae in the moss and know it is time to remove the adults. If no fry appear after a week or so, I will take the adults out and start looking for fry. Most of the time fry will appear.

It is truly unfortunate that we do not get to see these fish even try their flying tricks today in the aquarium, they have been bred in captivity for so many generations, they have lost the will to even attempt the feat. The Longnose Hawkfish is also the only one we know of to have been bred in captivity.

That orange-and-white-striped Nemo is practically synonymous with saltwater aquariums, and it’s one of the first fish new hobbyists turn to. It was also one of the first marine aquarium fish to be bred in captivity, back in the 1970s. Today dozens of varieties are available from breeders around the world.Clownfish were one of the first species of marine aquarium fish to be bred in captivity, which likely has helped protect wild populations from overcollection.The marine aquarium trade has been criticized for collection practices that harm coral and deplete populations of wild fish. But a shift toward captive-bred fish is one way those in the marine aquarium industry are working to protect reefs and reef fish.About 11 million tropical fish, some wild and some captive-bred, comprising about 1,800 species are to the U.S. each year. Many are collected from the reefs of Hawaii and Florida and are bred domestically too.“The driver is what the customers want—and the customers want survival,” says John Carberry, chairman and co-founder of Sustainable Aquatics, a major breeder of saltwater fish for the aquarium trade. “Hatchery-raised fish just survive a lot better. It’s economics.”But every year the list grows. Advances in marine fish husbandry, especially when it comes to what to feed newly hatched fish, and growing awareness of the need to protect coral reefs have encouraged more investment in the captive-bred fish industry. Captive-bred fish also have a reputation for being healthier because they’re already accustomed to prepared aquarium foods and are less likely to have been exposed to diseases during a long shipment process.Aquaculturists also hope to take the pressure off certain popular fish populations. For example, demand for clownfish jumped when the Disney Pixar movie came out in 2003. But breeders have been able to cultivate many species of clownfish in captivity for decades. That likely took at least some of the pressure off wild clownfish populations. (Data are lacking on this front, so it’s impossible to know for sure, according to marine biologist Andrew Rhyne, who’s ).
