    that my clowns might breed. They both got into the hole int he rock and appear to be hosting and the female keeps on going back into it. I think i might have eggs in the morning to bad i cant get pictures with how the rock is facing the bow.

    Too bad you don't have the moonlights yet to help set the mood!

    I haven't heard that line since high school;D

    That would be awesome if you could breed some. You have a beautiful pair there.

    Hope you are right and everything works out. If they lay eggs they will guard the area ferociously.

    i know right, they both hoped in as soon as the daylights went out, first time they have both gotten in the hole together

    hahahaha lol thats what came to mind for a the title to the thread :D
    and thanks, i dont think the eggs/fry would survive but we shall see
    haha i should

    they've been that way throughout the entire tank the past couple days and that's why im getting more fish tomorrow so they dont beat my firefish to death.

    the male is hovering over the hole while the female is inside, and my cleaner shrimp is near the spot. should be interesting

    here's a quick pic that i got of her in the hole, its a pretty decent size hole its also pretty deep too. they still dont constantly stay by the hole but they keep on going back and forth to it a lot more than normal

    Edit: the male is currently inside the hole now its like their taking turns
