Mom and dad Kribensis


Recommended Posts

Hey gang,

I just removed my Kribensis first batch of babies. They were 5 weeks old and it seemed Mom and Dad were tired of them. Lots of head shaking and hiding not the close parental care they had a week or so ago.

I am hoping I didn't move the babies to soon? First off Mom beat the hell out of Dad, now today two days after move both parents are hiding and seem almost depressed. Did I mess up? Do I need to put the babies back or would that make it worse? I am hoping they will snap out of it, they did eat today.

What do you guys think?

Ya, they got over it alright.

Their tank inherited brown algae from my main tank. While doing some cleaning I picked up one of their caves to scrub off the top. Dad was very reluctant to swim out of it so before cleaning it I got my flashlight out to check for eggs.

It was full of eggs!!! These guys don't believe  in small broods I guess. More babies coming.
