Bummer, good thing is, you will likely get another chance.  I've noticed with my Wurdemanni, the eggs seem to hatch a day or so before the molt. Not like the boggessi, which seemingly simultaneously hatch, molt, spawn again....

Why do you keep lights on 24hours a day for broodstock with clownfish?  Just a suggestion, but you might do better with a dark period.

So there's a blank post up there before the babies...I'm kinda confused where the babies came from. Did they somehow hatch post-molt?

The ones that didnt hatch before molt were all dead, but there are two shrimp with eggs, one hatched normally, the other didnt hatch before the molt and died. The pictures of the babies are from a later hatch.

Hi Paul,
I never succeed with these shrimp, for some reason shrimp seem to be more challenging for me.
