They must be determined....

...to have babies.

My clownfish have laid yet another batch of eggs, in the exact same spot, just 5 days after the last ones hatched. I never considered clownfish to be such prolific breeders. I'm pretty stoked, especially considering how long it's been since I've given that tank a water change.

Just wanted to share. I'll take new pics when I get home.

I didn't have the means to care for the first ones, so I just let nature take it's course. The eggs dissapeared, so I assume they hatched overnight and mom and dad ate them.

I probably wont have time to set up a tank for these either, but considering they are popping out eggs so quickly, that might not be a problem.

Pics later, I promise.

I have reared many freshwater angelfish using this method....Im not sure if it will work for clown fish, but I will jump on the soap box for a sec.......

The layed their eggs on a leaf a couple times, it was there spot....so I put a peice of slate rock in front of the leaf...the next week they laid eggs on the rock instead of the leaf....I then put the rock with an airstone in a small tank. The babies hatched in there, and you could feed them baby brine easily.

After that grow a little they are hardy as fug.

And I know, I know.....fresh water is for top offs and drinking, not aquariums.....salt is for fishing and fish tanks

I believe once the pair is mated, they will keep laying eggs regularly. Congratz!
