    I just saw the cromies and the clowns going crazy in my tank. When I switched on a torch I saw hundreds of small "eggs" coming from my monti, or,from its general direction. I tried to take some pics but none good enough to see anyhting really. Twenty minutes past seeing it now and all is quiet again.

    Anybody else have seen this before?

    Yes the sperm and eggs are fine and the skimmer can go crazy skimming it out

    But dont switch skimmer off. Not sure of your system size, nor the size of the spawning event, but have some water ready for a water change..

    Don't know if anyone saw this, but there was a documentary on the Great Barrier Reef where ALL the corals spawned at once, making the water look like a galaxy.

    Thank you guys. The skimmer went crazy for a bit, now ok again. Seems that the event was not large enough to cause much of a stir. I also have a fine filtersock, which I swapped out this morning. @KSreefster, I have such documentaries, very interesting and beautiful.
