Day 2 a couple men down but water at 78 deg ,salinity about 33 ppt, light 24 hrs , to grow algae ,slowly siphoning left over swimmers from the fresh water tank today. The little tank makes it hard to keep salinity steady but I'm taking my sweet time . Will take pics again tomorrow.

So one week and it seems like I have had very few casualties. Just did 20 % water change with a little algae and water out of my other tank. FYI i believe the Fluval sea hydrometer to be a little off after sitting in the salt tank for a while, rinsed it with fresh and it seemed better. So far so good. Keep you posted.

It sure is a lot of work outsider and a bigger rearing tank would make it alot easier to control salinity. As i found out mine was just over 36 ppt and i had a 60 - 70 % loss �� .I have approx 20- 30 remaining but i will try again as i have 2 berried amanos in my other tank right now and i have a little better idea of how to do this. I will get some pics again in a day or two of the survivors.

Well I'm pretty disappointed as my last survivors passed . Some had even started to move slightly horizontal which I assume means I was close. Like I said before I will try again once my other amano are ready .

Any more tips or tricks as I also have a berried female at the moment and would like to try rearing them. Is it easier to separate the female now to a rearing tank then remove her after the eggs hatch take her out and start the increase in salinity?

What are the best options?
