    Welcome to 3reef,

    Beautiful Clowns, I really like the B/W.

    Congrats.

    Are you going to try to raise any of the larvae?

    No i dont have the skill, equipment or knowledge:cry:
    but pickle lives close by and he's the resident expert in these matters. I'm hoping he can do something with these eggs.

    for anyone that hasn't seen them getting ready to lay eggs here's what it looks like. they did this for several hours before the female finally laid the eggs. constantly bitting at the rock, i'm assuming to make the spot smooth. they even kept bitting the rbta to keep it's tenticles away from the spot. i've never seen them do this before.

    I havn't been able to talk to pickle yet about his. for anyone that knows, will he be able to remove these eggs or do anything with them considering they are already attached to the rock? I'm hoping he can raise them.

    Probably not but I am just guessing.

    You will probably have many more spawns in the future so you can plan ahead.
