Today I noticed my Tomato Clownfish acting a little friskier than usual.  A few days ago I saw a white bump under the female's anal fin and thought it might be a fungal infection because it had a goofy gray tinge to it.  I figured I'd just wait and see what developed.  Well today I noticed that it was much bigger and longer...It was her ovipositor (egg laying tube)!!  She also had a big fat round belly, so that really means only one thing.  I watched her and the male clownfish do their dance and the ovipositor grew longer while the male started showing signs of arousal too.  I guess a video is worth more than my explanation.  I started recording after the first egg went down.  It's the little orange sac in the middle of the screen.  This patch grows much larger over the course of the 10 minute video.  Enjoy!

Mass eggs start going down around the 2 minute mark if you don't want to watch the fish dance.
