Thanx for the coments guys (and Gals!) .....The fry in this picture were about 4-5 days old.
Im surprised how fast they seem to grow every time I look in my tank they look siginificantly larger than the last time!

Wow, congratulations! SHe looks like a good mom. Are there any other fish in there that might eat the fry? Have you had many fry spawns before?

There are six neon tetras in my tank aside from mom, pop and the fry...but thanx to very protective parents they dont even look at the fry.
This is my first kribb spawn but I had some Kenyi (pseudotropheus Lombardoi) spawn once in a ten gal I used to have some years back.

The fry look bigger than I would expect for 4-5 days old. I would expect them to still be wigglers at that stage. I know all species are different and they have to grow fast to avoid being eaten. I know you said the krib parents are very protective and the neons don't bother them but size-wise, are the fry too big for the neons to eat?
