Clownfish ovipositor out, day 3.


New Member
My clownfish ovipositor has been out going on three days now. She is alone in her tank with her mate, they have been showing signs of mating (twitching, have a couple of spots cleaned) but they have never laid a clutch.

She eats normally and water parameters are all good due to me changed the water every 6 days. Is the ovipositor was only supposed to come out right before breeding?

All pictures via phone seem to be to large for this website. My clowns a over 4 years old and she looks swollen, what gives?
