Clown spawning

I love my little guys here. I don't know how they manage to get the energy to go through this every 18 to 20 days but they do. Unfortunately I don,t have the room to set up a fry tank. Although I might research this a bit and if it's not to difficult to raise these guys, who knows, I may have to make room LOL First they beat the heck out of my RBTA to make him move so they can lay the eggs.


This next pic is when they are almost ready. Notice the eyes are silver.

Then I shut the lights out and wait about an hour and they spawn. Please forgive this next pic but if you look real close, above the torch the water looks almost cloudy. If you look hard, you can see the specks which are the fry swimming

In this next pic, you can better see Dad saying goodbye to his babies

Ain't like going down to the pond, cetching bluegills and tommy cats!

I only took this one pic then my battery died. The sponge is bigger than it looks in the pic. It is almost 5 inches long. And the color is redder than in the pic.I'll take some more soon. Can someone tell me the name of the green encrusting coral in front of the red sponge? I know that it's in the torch family but I forgot the name. Thanks guys.

I wished, I would have to get a separate tank to raise the fry.They get eaten by the other fish.
