Clarkii clowns and eggs

My mated pair of clarkii clowns have been laying eggs for around 5 yrs or so. Here's a couple pics. (Wish I had a better camera)

Very Nice Larry. Any thoughts yet on raising the fry if you haven't already?

Thanks. No plans on even attempting to raise the fry. Way too much time and work involved.

Yep. The eggs will hatch in the next day or 2....and become free food for the other fish in the tank.

Yes. They have been laying eggs about every 3 weeks for over 5 yrs and not 1 fry ever make it to daylight (they hatch at night).
