    Hey guys I recently bought a percula clown and he has been constantly digging in the substrate. I think he is just making a home for himself and I checked for ich, which he doesnt have
    Ever since i got him there have been small brown objects that look like tiny eggs all over my tank ( 200 plus) Im really not sure what they are.
    Can anyone help me out?
    I only have 1 clown in my 150l system.

    Any chance you can post a picture of the small brown things in your tank?

    If they look like the small round things behind the clown in this picture they are eggs.

    Any time you want to pop by just give me a buzz.
    Will be out of the country again next week for 2 or 3 weeks but after that no problem.
