    I'vr noticed earlier in the week something in my tank moves the aragonitr around.
    Since then I moved my white damsel to the dsb since he's a trouble maker in the tank.

    Then I noticed the same patterns a day later. So I could confidently say it is him.

    But tonight I cought him in the act and managed to get a short clip of him doing this.

    Not sure if Tapatalk does videos? Probably have to upload it to youtube.

    Um, think you have to go into your youtube account and set the video to public, or something like that.

    Normal damsel behaviour. Quite a few other fish also do it.

    They will hatch, but quickly be eaten by everything else in the tank. Same as with clowns.

    The male does protect the site against hermits and other smaller fish. But unlucky for mine is that he is by far too small to even try on the big tank mates, they just ignores him. They cannot get into there either so his choice of a home was not that bad.
