I have a large black and white ocellaris clownfish (female) and a normal orange and white clownfish (male) the female has seemed to be getting big right under where her fins are, and they both pick at a frogspawn coral that is nearby. Can she be full of eggs? Please help me thanks

Also, this morning the clowns made a little nest in the sand and are swimming in it and they are really close to each other, could this be a good sign? Please help me thanks

Hey, the clowns are now hosting the pot and the female is now becoming aggressive towards the tang when it comes near the pot, is this a sign that she may be becoming ready

Hi Richie,
Please be patient, sometimes it takes a little while for responses to come through.

To answer your question, it does sound like your clowns are readying to spawn. The 'cleaning' behaviour kind of gives this away. And the aggressiveness is common, as clowns will vigorously defend their breeding ground.

Are rotifers hard to cultivate?
