    Default Baby fish?

    I have a pair of clowns and a pair of PJ cardinals. Could "baby fish" from them? I can't think of what else it could be . . . Let me know, and if one of the pairs spawned, why did never see eggs our "guarding" a spot by any of my fish? Watch this: DSCF1794.mp4 video by heidiiliff - Photobucket

    Thanks!

    Ok, could someone help point out what im looking at because I dont see anything at all lol
    It takes a long long time to build a coral reef. Step by step the reefs survive on partnerships. And the most important partners are you and I.

    Totally baby fishes~unless of course she's bought live mysid and nobody in her tank has eaten them. Maybe the mysid are breeding in her tank? Nope, I think they're baby fishes.

    99% of the time mysids occur naturally from the LR and marine algae we put in our tanks. they have random exposions of populations in out tanks and then can dissappear for awhile rather quickly then jsut all of the sudden come back in mass #'s for our fish to snack on

    So then it's possible they came in on her LR? Hmmm learn something new every day. I still think they're little fishes
