Sure wasn't expecting this...clownfish eggs.

I been noticing my clownfish pair picking at a crevice under their host torch coral. I just kept an eye on them. Tonight at feeding time I look in and there are...eggs. Atleast, that is what they look like. And the fish sure are guarding them well. Cleaning and fanning them alot.

Totally unexpected!

Any advice would be appreciated on how to try and rear them, or are they pretty much impossible? Only other fish in the tank is an algae blenny.

Wow, congrats DT!!

I'd get myself a brine shrimp factory and get it set up just in case. I'm sure the blenny will help himself if the opportunity arises but maybe you can rear a few of them. Good luck!!

I'm blind. Can you point out to me where the eggs are? Very curious! Congratulations. That's an awesome thing!

Lol. Sure thing. (Btw, you aren't the only person that said they couldn't see them.) They are the bunch of dark specks right under the torch coral. Sort of grey in color and there are quite a few of them. I'll edit and circle them when I get home tonight if you still can't see them.
