Talking My Kribs have Breed!! Fry swimming in my tank!!!

I wasn't trying to breed them, but after the day I've had it's a pleasant surprise. I'm only had for maybe less than a month and they've already breed in my tank. I need all the information you can give me on fry care. What to do with them, what to feed them, etc. I'll be doing research on my own but, I can never know too much.

55 gallon planted tank, starting over!!!( looking crappy, needs a major rescape)

Are they alone in the tank, or is it a community ? Are the parents keeping them herded together ?

No, they're not alone. They're in a 55 planted with slivertip tetras, Diamond tetras, and otos. Yes, they're keeping them all together.

Since this was a surprise, I assume you don't have anywhere to move the fry. In that case, I'd get some frozen baby brine shrimp and let nature take its course. Thaw the shrimp so that it's around tank water temperature. Keep all the other fish well fed. Keep the babies fat. Good luck !

Thank you! I'll be sure to pick up some brine shrimp.
