Turgidus puffer - no mate, but tons of eggs.

Turgidus puffer - no mate, but tons of eggs.

I have two turgidus puffers that shared a divided tank almost a year ago.
The two look very similar, but they have different head shapes.

The only new thing I did differently was add a sun shade from a window. The tank still has plants and a light on the far end.

2 days ago, I placed a board leaning up against the tank in the room and the next thing I know there are eggs and the puffer guarding them.

These have to be a false egg or like a chicken egg that does not get fertilized, correct?

Human women drop an unfertilized egg every month.
