Question: What do the Semicircle angelfish and Stoplight parrotfish have in common?
Answer: They’re new species whose eggs have been photographed and documented in the Open Source Marine Fish Egg Catalog.
As of this writing, the Egg Catalog has grown to include photos and morphometric measurements of 198 eggs representing 50 species of marine aquarium fishes across 16 families. Do you have these or other species in our Egg Catalog living in your exhibits? Ever thought about aquacu
Filling the Open Source Marine Fish Egg Catalog with high quality eggs takes talent, practice, and dedication.
Members of the Egg Catalog Team have invested their time and talents, first, in egg collector design. There are a few ways to collect eggs from aquarium habitats. Our aquarists have experimented with floating collectors, plankton net collectors, and skimmer collectors. Any way you cut it, collectors usually need to be customized to the size and shape of the habitat, so our aqu

Do you work for a public aquarium or zoo? Do you have any of these species in your exhibits? Ever thought about aquaculturing them? Get an idea of the size, shape, and morphometrics of their eggs in order to identify and target them in your aquarium or zoo's larval rearing program. Check out these and othe
Public aquarium exhibits have all the right ingredients to get fish in the mood: Lots of fish, abundant habitat, excellent diets and water quality. Some public aquaria and zoos have dedicated the talents of their aquarists to aquaculture eggs collected from their fishes mating on exhibit to provide an alternative supply to wild-caught fish. But whose egg is whose?
The public aquarium and zoo community has committed the resources and talents of their best and brightest to find out. Over the

The pelagic spawned eggs are very adhesive for a good part of their initial development and unlike anything I've ever worked with. I'm STOKED!
Below are some photos I briefly took of eggs approximately 12HPF (hours post fertilization) at 30X.
