coral catfish

ok i have 2 coral catfish in my 10 gal tank alone with and anemone. the other day i moved my rock around a little bit and i found something that looks like an egg. it is a small white ball covered in bubbles. i also noticed that they are digging a hole in the sand underneath a piece of live rock. they are both about 2 in long and i want to know if they r breeding. if they r breeding will the anemone eat the baby cat fish or do i need to move the anemone to a different tank?

First off what kind of lighting do you have, and what kind of anemone is it? Also coral cats need a 75 gallon tank, and it is probbaly a sponge, or a bubble algae.

I had coral cats digging under lr to their demise. If they are breeding most likely your skimmer or feather dusters will get them before they are of signifigant size.

They get huge, if they fit in a 10 gal then there not adults. Researching this before you buy them always helps...........
