My lorteties spawned on their own. The problem id not getting them to spawn but in finding food small enough to rear the fry, which hatch out smaller than a speck of dust.

It's an old thread from August last year, would be good to know if they have been raised before though
It's amazing how easy maintenance is. If done regularly and thoroughly

That's a good idea, I wonder if coral food would work

As with rearing most marine fish, it is a matter of culturing the proper foods to ensure adequate attraction to the fry and adequate nutrition for them at the same time. Similar techniques to those for Clownfish fry rearing would be worth trying. That is a major project but it can be done.
