New green eggs observed

Somebody laid a small clutch of bright green eggs. Could be the wrasses or the clowns.

If they are the clownfishes, they would be guarding them 24/7

Def not clown eggs. Clown eggs are orange when first laid then turn black.

Yeah that's what I though. Are you sure they're eggs? How many pairs of fish are in the tank and what are they?

It doesn't look like any other coral I have, but I do have a green torch coral that is on the other side of the tank. Only pairs I have are the clowns and Canary Wrasses. No one tends the eggs, so I agree, they probably aren't eggs, but what are they? Guess I will have to wait for them to grow out.

Did it appear overnight, or a steady increase in size? Does look like tentacles/polyps rather than Eggs to me too.

They appeared a few at a time. It must be a coral, but it sure looked like eggs early on.
