Talking My clowns

Ok so I have noticed my clown showing signs for a looooong time, they have been cleaning a few spots on the rock for a couple months now also. I have been doing lots of research and reading everything I could about clowfish spawing it has become an obsession, haha. I put this clay pot in right under the hammer where they spend 90% of there time and I also put a peice of tile above that. It has been about a week since I put the pot in and I think it is coming soon! showing all the signs. If you look really close on the female I believe you can see the ovipositor. I don't plan on doing anything with the eggs until they lay a few times but I am starting my phyto and rotifer cultures now! here are some pics.

Pretty neat reminds me I need to get my Maroon a mate so it will stop moving my corals and blowing sand everywhere with its tail.

5 months after adding the clay pot first clutch I don't plan to do anything with the eggs yet. I am going to let them get some practice male is doing a good job with them for his first time. I have been culturing fish all summer at school so I plan to produce some fish for sure.
