Good morning all, the other day I noticed my 2 clownfish being overly aggressive to our chocolate chip starfish and a snail (and my feeding hand), turns out it looks like 1 clownfish is guarding a small clutch of tiny black / brown eggs, and the other seems like it would rather watch tv. I'm both excited and nervous. I have a few questions that hopefully someone might be able to point me in the right direction. I would like to see these little guys open up and live, thrive etc. Quick stats: Nanocube 24G DX AIO 2x clownfish 1x chocolate chip starfish 2x money cowrie 1x small trochus snail 1x large trochus snail Quick questions: 1) With our tank having just 2 clowns and the rest are snails, would the spawn be possible food for them or no? Might be a silly question but i really don't know! 2) Should i be killing the pumps at night before i go to bed? Will they at some point "break off" the rock and start floating around as eggs? Or do they spawn and then float around? I'm looking at maybe picking up a larval trap online, if that might help 3) Whats with the dark eggs color? It looks like the top of the egg has a darker brown spot, and the rest of the egg is a bit lighter. I'm sorry i don't have pictures available currently, something i'm working on, but due to the location of where the eggs are, and the coraline algae on the glass, it's hard to snap a picture. Thanks all!
