Update 1 month fry and parents, the fry now forms two or more schools, and the parents have less intrest in them and also are less agressive towards other fish.

New update: 1 month plus few days, the fry is regulary feeding among adults, and showing no fear at all, even from fish 5 times their size...

That's so awesome. I liked the background music. (I remember trying to learn to play that song on the piano.) Cute little fishes. :-)

Great vid. Your plants look really nice and healthy. I couldn't spot not one speck of algae in your tank.
I'm surprised that your gourami show zero interest in the fry whatsoecer. Nice tank!

I have my cleaning team of 5 Ancistrus cf. Cirrhosus, the gourami is very well feed, plus is a peacefull guy, just wants to be left alone :-D

The light is also not very strong, because of the Kribs digging habit, i've chose to keep only gravel in the bottom and very undemanding plants, but still they grow and grow, i have to cut them every other week.

I've changed my layout a little bit, to get my Ancistrus more on the foreground, and lateral glass... here are some photos:
