    Hi All,

    GREAT news...... today my clowns laid their first batch of eggs while under my care !! :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

    I know the chances of any surviving are dismal at best, but now that they are laying eggs my marine priority has now shifted to learning as much as possible about this process and getting all the right odds and sods for the care of future batches..... ANY advice will be well recieved ..... and anyone in JHB who is breeding... please let me know !!!!:thumbup:

    On a personal note it was most appropriate that i was on the phone with Dallas when the discovery was made !!!
