A Manual for Commercial Production of the Swordtail, Xiphophorus helleri
The information presented in this manuals was designed to help farmers with the commercial production of ornamental fish in Hawaii and does not necessarily apply to all locations and conditions. The methods described could be applied to other livebearing fishes such as the molly, the guppy, and the platy
A Manual for Commercial Production of the Tiger Barb, Capoeta tetrazona, A Temporary Paired Tank Spawner
The information presented in this manuals was designed to help farmers with the commercial production of ornamental fish in Hawaii and does not necessarily apply to all locations and conditions.  Although this manual is directed to the culture of C. tetrazona, the methods described are also applicable to other members of the barb family, which have similar reproductive strategies
Manual for the Production of the Banggai Cardinalfish, Pterapogon kauderni, in Hawaii
The production process described herein is economically viable in Hawai‘i and  may also be readily adopted by small family farms in coastal areas throughout the tropics
Enrichment of Artemia for Use in Freshwater Ornamental Fish Production
The purpose of this manual is to describe what fatty acids are, their nutritional importance, and ways they can be used to enrich live feeds. This manual focuses on the use of and enrichment of Artemia
Advances in Breeding and Rearing Marine Ornamentals
This work addresses the most relevant advances in the breeding and rearing of marine ornamental species. The main breakthroughs in marine ornamental fish culture are discussed, with seahorses deserving a section of their own as a result of their conservation status and unique biology
Hatchery production of the clownfish Amphiprion nigripes at Agatti island, Lakshadweep, India
Healthy individuals of matured clownfish, Amphiprion nigripes and sea anemone,Heteractis magnifica were collected from the Agatti island lagoon. Larvae metamorphosed and took up parent colouration and comparatively high growth rate was observed when fed on algae enriched rotifer than those with poly unsaturated fatty acid (PUFA)
Reef fish Breeding and Hatchery Production Using Brackishwater, A Sustainable Technology with Special Reference to Clark’s Clownfish, Amphiprion Clarkii (Bennett, 1830)
The present study on spawning and larval rearing of reef associated clownfish,Amphiprion clarkii was investigated under captive condition. The present findings have shown the prospective sign for captive breeding of a highly demanded aquarium fish using brackishwater, by removing the existing foremost technological snag of rearing them in running seawater.
