My baby's gonna be a mommy! We're so very proud and hope we raised her with the skills of motherhood.

Congrats! My B&W Ocellaris pair started laying eggs too. Persuaded by my kids, I'm going to try to raise them too. It should be challenging yet fun experience!

Good luck and keep us posted!

congrats, you gonna try to raise the fry? looks like you'll have plenty of time as their eggs are still spread around but after a few trys they will be much better at it and the eggs will be cluttered much better.

If any of these survived and/or were viable, how long till they would hatch?

Anywhere from 8-12 days. Depends on a lot of factors.
Mine were hatching on the eighth night at first, then it changed to the 7th.
Basically when you can see shiny silver eyes, and they look long and wavy, they will hatch that night or the next.
Have fun!

yep those are eggs, on day 10 you will see the silver looking eyes, then that night they will release into the water, filter, skimmer :)

Mine just hatched on the eighth night. The night after you see the silver dots of their eyes.
