    Default OMG! I can't believe this!!

    Ok. so i come into work this morning and turn the lights on and get everything ready. checking throught the tanks and i come across the damsel tank. there are two larger damsels that keep picking on all the rest and keeping them away from two of the rocks that are the tank. i was like 'whats up with this behavior?' i get a latter and look inside the tank. nothing. i pick up one of the rocks and it's kinda slimy and squishy where i grabed it. it's completely covered in eggs on the underneath!!!!!! everything is stinkin' breeding here in the store!!! sigh. so i check the other rock. MORE EGGS!!!! there has to be at least 200 eggs in this tank. so my lyretail damsels are breeding also. whine. and no i don't have my camera today to take pictures. the eggs are clearish and very tiny! about half the size of clownfish eggs, i missed them til i turned the rock at a certain angle and the reflective light lit them up.i need more tanks and more room.

    Very cool - gotta love it when things reproduce for you! Says you are definitely doing something right.
    I collect PEs, and I'm always looking to trade for ones I don't have yet.

    You going to try and raise them? If not, give Tal a call and maybe he can give it a try.

    yes i am going to try. i slowly acclimated the eggs to the larval tank for my clarkii clowns. so i was thinking that since clowns are part of the damsel family that just maybe i can raise them both together without problems for a few weeks. so i will try and see how it goes. i'm taking my camera to work today so i can a good pic of the eggs.
