They are around 4 months in a small reef. Temp at 78-80 and salinity at 2.4. Some were raised from eggs and some were newly hatched when I got them.

I see they did the same "snuff snuff" after like mine did in the vid. I posted. Also noticed the "hacking up a gelatinous blob" behavior I have also seen.
I noticed mating first at 17 - 18 weeks old (April 8) and spotted eggs today (May 2), so 3 weeks+. I am sure eggs have not been there more than a couple days.
I'd like to know how long (roughly) until hatch.
