    I've noticed in the last few weeks....something being deposited on the glass....and repeated scrapped it off when I did the weekly glass cleaning.

    At first I thought it to be some time of larvae...but could not figure out from what though? I noticed 2 of my chromis (have a shoal of 15) kept swimming in short bursts against the glass with the bellies touching the glass, possibly the males fertilising?

    the spawn, what it looks like.

    and the closest macro shot I could to.

    Looks exactly like the work from my dominos. Very useful information for me. So chromis and dominos are producing the same quantity and because of that, very poor developed larvae.
    Do me a favour please. Post your tank temperature and when they hatch.
    They spawned today, hey? 31.05.2010

    Yip it is, mine use to do the same until I moved.

    Normally all the other fish go wild while they do this.

    Unfortunately I scraped them off when I cleaned the glass. Next time I will just clean around the eggs and leave them be, to see what happens. With winter this side, my temps drop to 23 degrees some nights and then back to 27 during the day.
