    Who has clowns that are older than 2 yrs old?

    Please post if you have a pair of clowns that are bonded, maybe have laid eggs (considered mated pair) and what type are they, plus pictures if possible.

    I have a pair of:
    misbar true percs that lay regularly ~4 yrs old
    pair of onyx Picasso extremes that have laid once so far ~ 3yrs old
    pair of mochas that have not laid yet but are picking clean a spot so should be soon ~3 yrs old
    pair of black and whites that have not laid but are ~ 4 yrs old and I believe are both non sexual as they have always been with my true perc pair
    pair of black phantoms that I just got ~ 1-2 yrs old and have not laid but are hosting a clay pot so hoping it will lead to cleaning a spot soon
    pair of reg occ that are 6m-1yr old and have not laid and not really doing much of anything yet

    I have a pair of wild Black Onyx percs that are pushing 9+ years old. They lay fairly regularly, but sadly have recently lost their carpet anemone (seems I was too busy recently to observe it's demise, but tank sitter caught it).

    I previously had a pair of ocellaris that almost made 20 years... I was their third owner. They came from Dolphin Tropicals in the late 80's and laid eggs for about a dozen years.

    I have a pair of Ocellaris that will be two years old next month. I don't know if they have ever laid eggs. They have an over hang and cave that their RBTA is attached to that they will not allow any of the fish to enter and always protect viciously...even against me. Damn glad they don't have teeth like piranha I would have bite marks on my hands all the time LOL

    Five year old mated pair who lay eggs every couple weeks. Male black and white Ocellaris, Female common Ocellaris.

    Speaking of clowns -- anyone setup to breed them, have the green water and rotifers, etc.?
