What spawning cycle are your pairs on?

What spawning cycle are your pairs on?

Postby Heisenberg » Mon Jun 17, 2013 2:13 am

My clowns spawned for the first time June 4th.
It is my only successful spawn since I got into breeding 6 months ago.

They spawned the day I was leaving for vacation (of course) and so when I was gone I had a friend feed them.
I usually feed them 4-5 times a day and my friend could only feed them once a day..
I was gone for exactly 7 days.

Could this be the end of their spawning for awhile? I've got them back on their regular feeding times and the female looks somewhat fat.

The 2 week mark is here so I'm getting worried

Is her belly fat before she is feed?

Yes.
She doesn't get very fat when she's Gravid though.
The first time I didn't even know she was close to laying eggs!

You'll notice a tube hanging out from her underside , which indicates she is close to laying..
