Here's one; I might be able to dig up some photos of newly-hatched if that is what you wanted to see.

fwiw, I've read that the b&w varient of occellaris (if that's what you have) can take alittle longer to getting around to spawning than many other species. Up to 3 years is what I've read. I'm still waiting on my b&w pair to get with the program as well.

My black and white ocellaris pairs started spawning at 1.5 - 2 years of age. I don't know if anyone has established longevity for these, but it's probably similar to regular ocellaris. I have several pairs that are going on 16 years now, and still spawning. There are numreous reports of 20+ years. In about a month I should have an article complete about conditioning these and larval rearing, complete with lot's of pics.
