    The other day I came home to find a large slime coated layer of small round red eggs covering a rock of pollyps. The current pulled pieces off which was blown around the tank. Non of the fish seemed to pay it any notice. Who could have laid these eggs? Looking at the volume it could only be a few possibilities

    Yellow tang & regal tang - not likely?
    Clown - probably not as it is not all that large (2 years old)
    3 chromis
    strawbery dottyback - constantly looks 'pregnant'


    I also have a sea hare but seems very unlikely due to the precise egg placement amoung the feathery pollyps.

    Any thoughts as to who's playing house?

    Well, fish wise, the only one that makes sense would be the chromis as there is more than one of them. But I don't think they ever lay red eggs, also I think they normally lay eggs on the glass. Could possibly be a worm species or something else living in your rock, an urchin perhaps?
