I was just in the process of performing a water change when one of the Red Spot Cardinals spawned right in front of me!! The female released the most enormous packet of eggs where upon the male immediately took them into his mouth, it took several minutes for him to juggle them into position so that they all fit in. I really don't know how he did it, his mouth now looks fit to burst. To say that I was gobsmacked is a complete understatement, the fish have only been in the tank for six short days! This has to be one of the best days in my reef keeping journey so far.
I wished that I could have videoed the magical moment but I was busy siphoning water out of the DT, I'm surprised I didn't have a disaster whilst distracted. I will try to take a picture of the proud daddy in the next couple of days if I can, he's easy to spot with his bulging mouth.
