I like taking the base that the flower pot sets on and silacone it to the top of the flower pot giving it a floor for the wigglers so they don't get killed or lost in the gravel. then use like before mentioned extra gravel and silacone it to the outside making it look like the base of the tank. But again by silaconing the plate of the flower pot to the top of it you'll give the wigglers something flat to move around on and not get stuck in the gravel and dying.

Another interesting cave can be made from an orchid pot found at many nurserys. It is a clay type pot covered with small holes about as big around as your thumb. java fern can be stuck in the holes and kribs as well as other small fish love darting in and out of it.

Your setup looks fine. My suggestion about the reptile cave was just for ease when it comes time to check up on the eggs. Using a pot like that with the plants in front should work out great. Hopefully you'll have some baby kribs in no time. It took my room mates taeniatus about a month for their first spawn. Unfortunately they often times eat their first spawn or two.
