    Seems that everyones taking naughty pics of their clowns lately. Well I'm as much for a good ole perv as anyone else so here are my clowns trying to have a personal moment.

    The first picture is of the clowns preparing the area where they wanted to lay the eggs. This started several hours beforehand.

    The next pics are of the female laying the eggs and the male passing over them and fertilising them. Please note that clown males dig big chicks, so the large clown is the female. Nothing wrong with that.... don't judge!

    The next 2 are of the male doing the wild thang

    And finally a picture of the eggs. They lasted for all of half a beer, before the other fish and the clowns ate them.

    Hmmm... Thanks Jaco. I was very lucky to get these shots and went to the trouble of cropping them so that you can clearly see the actual mating process. I surprised by the lack of interest in these photos!

    Hi Mudshark.... no - not a lack of interest..... just a lack of reefers being online, and a lack of time ;)

    AWESOME pics man! I LOVE it! Supercool! Many thanks for sharing!

    Thanks Jacques.... I suppose I'm being a little over-excited by all the whoopie going on:p
    yeah Riaan... they were the main culprits. Their eggs, their choice I suppose.

    Thanks guys... I don't think I have amazing skills Niel. I just got very luck that I got home just as the clowns were starting the whole episode. It doesn't take very long, which is why you don't often see pictures of it I think.

    Are you talking about "Finding Nemo"? Because these pictures came before that.... more like "Makin' Nemo"
