I always welcome photos of these animals laying eggs. A sea grass bed may seem a strange place for a bryozoan feeder, like Tambja, to be laying its eggs, but sea grass beds are utilised as nurseries and places of refuge by many animals, and it only takes a small rocky outgrowth or a dead shell in the grass beds, to provide an attachment point for a bryozoan colony.
