Hi, My wife and I have a display tank (53 gal Red Sea) we wanted to raise some babies also. Two of our males had babies so far. We were lucky and one male had 25 and the other had approximately 60 about two weeks later. We set up two 5 gallon aquariums for the infants and a 36 gallon for the juviniles (eating mysis). Ocean rider has many care sheets and we started frozen Mysis juice with live baby brine at 3 weeks. At 4 weeks we feed chopped mysis first and then a shot of live baby brine after about 15 minutes. At 6 weeks we moved the juviniles to our 36 gallon because they could eat whole and chopped frozen Mysis (Hikari). If you have too many babies, check out local pet stores might be interested in raising them, try your friends or church freinds also. Good Luck, Steve and Margaret.
