    hey everyone,this is dale6,lorri and i setup our new 2.4m its been running for a while now and this evening we witnessed our anthias spawning!All our anthias are wild caught and one eventually turned into a male.I noticed today one female was noticeably fatter than the others and said she could be carrying eggs much to my delight an hour later the male began swimming around her and vibrating,they then proceeded to swim up towards the top of the tank side by side and the eggs and sperm where released!I then fetched the camera but only caught one video of them spawning.will upload later,what an amazing thing to witness!:biggrin:

    That's awesome! I have not heard of it either. You may want to check over at MOFIB to see if anyone else has experience.

    Can't wait to see pics!
