Breeding Orchid Dottybacks
(Pseudochromis fridmani)

I ran across these well-written articles by Clayton Smith and wanted to share them with everyone. As you know the Orchid Dottyback is one of my favorite species, and Mr. Smith does a good job of documenting his success at raising a brood of 76 of these beauties to adulthood.

Part 1
Tells of his struggles and failures at first try...

Part 2
Success! Keeping a constant supply of highly nutritious food, keeping the fry in a suitable environment to prevent physical problems from head bumping and finally reducing mortalities from bacterial infections...

Clayton has had other successes in propagation and breeding fish too, see his list for reference:
