    Can you tell me what are these red coloured "eggs" on my coral? Is it possible my clown have spawned? Could I be that lucky?

    It looks like clown eggs, but they almost always lay their eggs on a clean flat surface, so i dont think its clown eggs.
    What other fish do you have. Even if they are single...

    If it was the clowns, they would be guarding it fearlessly!

    Most likely eggs from the star polyps

    Ok, @459 is that a good thing? Good indication of tank parameters etc? It does make more sense that it is from the star polyp they seem to be "extending" from the polyp.

    Things spawning isnt always a good sing, it can sometimes be a stress response too. Ive seen star polyps spawn in good water though, friend of mines used to spawn like clock work.
