    I noticed some strange behavior, so I just had my macro lens on the d90 and not really great with it so sorry for the video. This morning I noted what looks like eggs on the corner of the tank. Let me know what you think??

    The first pic isn't chromis eggs. I have a few eggs like that in my tank and no chromis. I was actually going yo post a thread asking what they were, LOL!! My guess is nassarius snail eggs.

    Nice video I think it could be a sign that they are going to breed.

    tough to see in video if you weren't there in person but you can see is what i'm guess is eggs are coming from the female and the rest are eating as she is swimming around and they are poping out. two of the 9 look like the 2nd pic. the largest one not the one in pic was brushing again my overflow which could mean ick but doubt or maybe making a spot.

    I think that chromis are open spawners so there would be no eggs on the glass.
