Hi guys,

My clownfish are 2 and a half years and I believe they are sexually mature. They have been showing signs of spawning for a few days now, cleaning a spot in a clay pot, shimmering dance thing with each other, spending a lot of time in the clay pot and the female seems to be getting big around her stomach.

I was just wondering how long does this process go on for and when should I expect eggs? Days, weeks, months?

For me- 7 to 10 days then eggs are laid every 3-4 weeks
