Kribensis fry!

Just when I thought my pair of Kribs may not have had a successful first breed I found the female herding a big school of fry out of her cave for the first time! Its a community tank with some cories that share the bottom with em so hopefully they don't get too over aggressive! Looks good so far though!

As promised, here are some pics of the fry. Sorry the quality is so bad but I have yet to figure out how to get crisp pics of my aquarium with my camera... Day 2 and they all still seem to be safe, the female herded them all back into the cave last night so hopefully she keeps that up! I also uploaded a quick video to youtube that might show them a bit better

No problem! :)

It's awesome to watch her herd them all on feeding trips around the whole tank while daddy acts as a bodyguard and keeps everyone else away!
