My first Kribensis fry

Hi everyone,
I have to brag ... about 2 weeks ago I got a pair of Kribs(Pelvicachromis pulcher) and they have finally spawned. I put a flower pot in there, thinking that would be a good place for them, instead the female chose a lil crack in the drifwood. It's pretty interesting to watch them care for the fry. I'm very excited.

Here is a short video (sorry for the quality and the reflection of me)

just keep doing what you are doing. Kribs are the best of parents.

Yeah Kribs are awesome parents! I love watching them mate, have babies and raise them. I have raised several Varities of Pelvicachromis and they all have done well! Congrats! You will enjoy them!

just added new video to my first message. I was feeding them brine shrimp for the first time today. Everybody got their stomachs stuffed. They are very interesting to observe as most of you guys said.

they will make a great addition to any tank. I've been trying to get ahold of some Pelvicachromis Taeniatus Nigerian reds. they are just wonderful to watch!

Lil update: I have now between 30-40 baby kribs (some of them died), which are about 2 months old now. I moved them to a separate tank about 2 weeks ago. They seem to be doing fine, eat a lot, growing nicely Just added a new video to my first message.
