On the last pics all the tiny white balls in the pics are I am guessing sperm and the cowrie was spraying it out through the elephant trunks in huge clouds. One of the coolest things I have ever witnessed should have got a video but only caught the final little sprays before he stopped and moved on. As a result of this a few months later I noticed 1 tiny cowrie crawling around, now whether it came as a hitchhiker on a frag or from breeding is anyone's guess. Like I said it is a repost this happened 2 - 3 years ago in my anemone tank but I still remember it like it was yesterday.
