    My 2 perculas have been showing alot of spawning behaviour but no eggs yet. Was wondering if this was because of my yel tail damsel and 6 line wrasse chowing the eggs? They seem half immune to anemone stings :(

    What are the clowns doing? They may just be getting ready to spawn.

    DonĀ“t you worry. Your other fish will never have the chance to eat the eggs from your clowns. Once they got eggs, try and clean the frontscreen with a sponge that you are keeping in your hand. Then you will feel what I mean. I got bitten so many times from my clowns and if they would bite another fish like that, you will see it on the fish.
    Spawning takes place in the afternoon!

    Post some pics of your pair, please.

    Hehe, my ocellaris swimming into my hand and biting me into the inside. They are getting extremly brave, daring and aggressive once they got eggs. ;)

    Your puppies will turn into nasty Rotweilers.:p

    Nice looking fish, but as I expected, they are NOT perculas. They are ocellaris!:(
    As soon as they lay eggs let me know!
