krib wobbling and breathing fast

Hi all, my kribs laid eggs and the female stays in the coconut and when she comes out, she is breathing heavy and wobbles. Could this be from the loss of the eggs or is it a disease.

okay so all the fish are now getting better... I feel soooooo bad. I was suffocating my fish... that probably means my krib eggs are going bye bye.

Don't worry it happened to me when I first got my africans. Turns out there wasn't enough surface vibration so the fish were not getting enough oxygen. All I did was point the output to my canisters toward the surface and problem solved. Now in all my tanks I make sure there is enough surface vibration. The eggs might still be there. If they are not I am sure the kribs will spawn again.

they are still guarding the coconut, and the female is almost always in there so I think it's okay
