How go a parents are kiribs??

I have a female in a cave with around 75 eggs. The Dads hanging around the front and not letting anything close to the front of it. I'm wondering if they'll let the eggs hatch or eat them? I've been needing them to breed for awhile now.
If someone's had kribs and knows if they'll make good parents and let the eggs hatch. if you could let me know. I've never had a spawn from kirbs and m just wondering if they'll make it to free swimming?

Most definitely. They are usually excellent parents and will tire themselves out herding the fry.
Once this task becomes too daunting, they should be seperated.

Kribs make the best parents I've seen. Very protective.
