Congrats! I'd like to offer some advice - make sure you have a backup plan for the dad. After about 10 days to 2 weeks, the mother will beat him off viciously to protect the fry. Mine protected the fry together for about that long and then mom turned on dad. I had to divide the tank to protect him and let his tail heal. I read up on it, and it is quite common.
I should have purchase either 2 males or 2 females. I'll think on it and decide which one to remove. I seen the female excavate the gravel in the coconut shell so she may be the one I pick. I have to leave the fry to their own devices and remove the survivors and give them to the lfs when they are big enough. I won't be feeding them directly but they can get their food from the sinking wafers I put in for the cories.
