So I've been researching breeding fish for a while. @Kim Pattison threads have been very helpful. It sounds like it can be a full time job lol. This is definitely something I would like to get into in the future. I was thinking I could build my own tanks if I can find glass/acrylic for cheap enough, or I was thinking about plumbing multiple 10g 20g long tanks to a single sump. My focus would be clowns to start off with and learn, and maybe some cardinals or orchid dotty backs. Eventually I would want to get into basslets, assessors, and gobies. It seems the toughest part would be the live food. BBS are relatively easy to hatch, rots and phyto don't sound too hard to grow, and tigger pods seem very easy to maintain. I was also reading about microworms, but those seem better for freshwater and from what I've read, seem to be on the nutritional level of BBS. Is there any other live foods similar size or smaller than rots that I am missing? And do we have any large scale marine fish hatcheries here in California?
