Question Clowns about to lay eggs?

I noticed my clowns are always cleaning, and are varry agressive every now and then, the female under side right by the fin gets pretty big then small again. So I am not sure what is going on here. i keep hoping that they will lay eggs, but nothing seems to be showing up all though they always act like it. How can you tell if your female is starting to develop eggs? is there any good sights that show a day by day picture of it? Any help would be great. Thanks guys

-Cody

they don't usually lay eggs in corals its usually beside the coral/anemone they host. the eggs look liek green mossy algae and you'll see the female lay them then the male will do his business on them

I was under the impression clowns laid there eggs on the smoothest flatest surface they can find. Thats why people will put a small tile in there tank for them. I have never heard of them laying eggs in a hole in the sand or a cave.
