    Who is the culprit?

    My tank inhabitants include
    - 2 x True perc clowns
    - Midas blennie
    - lawnmower blennie
    - Purple fire fish
    - Flame angle
    - a Porcelain crab
    - a cleaner shrimp,
    - a peppermint shrimp,
    - 2 x local shrimps and
    an assortment of snails

    and what is it? eggs?

    Spawning? The star polyps are huge already, I really dont need them to spread all over the tank :eek: Suppose I can just siphon them out or will they not actually propagate (please correct my terminology :blush:)? Would it make good fish food?

    Thanks!!

    Thanks. Having looked at utube vid my star polyps definitely spawned last night.

    No sign of the eggs this morning so either my fish have full tummies or I will have baby star polyps everywhere quite soon :p

    Was very cool to watch!
