I cleaned my tank last week and went to remove a rock that looked cruddy with algea. I took it out and my fingers were in slime. I could see maybe 8-10 eggs that I didn't crush/maim so I put it back.

Today I noticed the female krib slip into a crevice under a slab of slat. You can actually see under this rock from under the tank so with flashlight in hand, down I went.

Babies!!! I could see 5 of them in the gravel, I have no idea how many though.

I'm lost!

The following day mom moved out from under the rock and into the center of the tank with at least three babies and into a clump of java ferns. Day three had her swimming around agitated and without the lil ones anywhere to be found.

This was the second time they bred so they are still young and learning. Will let you all know if anything develops in the future.
