Onyx Percula Clownfish Breeding Update

Well I have been having some struggles with clownfish larvae dying the first night after hatch.  This time I tried mixing using a  50/50 mix of  water from my brood stock system and freshly made saltwater.  It seemed to make a big difference as I had about 75-100 clownfish larvae alive after the first night.  Over the next 10 days I lost some but I still have around 50 or so left that went through metamorphosis.  At this point they are looking pretty good and eating a ton of food.  I am using TDO size "a" dry food and newly hatched baby brine shrimp.  They are getting fed 5 times daily and they still look like they can eat more.  Here are some pictures of them.
