Cool!

Will they swim around the eggs like that until they hatch? Do they look after the fry too?

Re: My Clowns have just laid their first eggs ... #4
Well , in theory , yes ....

However , the eggs will all be gone in a few days , a reef tank is not a great breeding ground ....

Everything will eat them , but it means that they are mature enought to breed , so i guess this will happen every few weeks.

Re: My Clowns have just laid their first eggs ... #8
Well , Little Neems is just over a year , and Grumps is of an unknown age as she was full grown when we got her.

She had lived with someone else , and when they broke down their system , they brought her back to my LFS , from where i got her ....

Cool vid Howard, great to see them doing so well, and wouldnt it be great if you could seperate the clowns to a diff tank so the eggs could hatch.

Re: My Clowns have just laid their first eggs ... #10
Ah bless. They are being very protective aren't they.

Lets hope they have some success soon as they seem to be very protective of them.

One of my LFS has a 140 gallon reef tank and their clowns are into a spawning routine. They have had several batches of eggs which they protect just like your 2.

It is lovely to watch them working their hardest to protect their little eggs.

The kids were fixated on them last time they had some eggs in my LFS.
