    Spawning Clowns Video

    My ocellaris clowns laid eggs last night and I captured it on a short video. You'll notice every time the male is not fertilizing the eggs he is chasing the other fish away.

    180 gallon reef. 230 lbs live rock. Mostly LPS and softies with increasing numbers of SPS. Desjardini Tang, Purple Tang, Powder Blue, Heniochus, Ocellaris clowns, chromis and a mandarin. 3- 250 watt 10000K metal halide lights with 2 VHO actinics.

    No plans for the eggs. These clowns lay eggs every ten or eleven days. I don't try to raise the fry as I would have to remove the eggs and feed them when they hatch. I just enjoy thae fact that they do it.
