Clowns in bed???

I have a mated pair of Ocellaris Clowns that I bought about three weeks ago. The female seems to have built a bed of sorts in the sand. (see pic below) She seems to keep it quite clean and spends a lot of time right off the bottom of it. Is this a sign that she may be ready to lay eggs? I've only ever seen this with Bass, and Bream in the wild before they spawn.

Yeah,they like to clean the sand. You may want to put a clay pot over there to give them something to host. They lay the eggs on surfaces, not in the sand.

I saw the clay pot in another thread. I'll have to try this. I'll update on the success!!
