I got wigglers

My kribs have surprised me with wigglers today. They'd been hiding out in an ornament in the tank but then today I notice them in a flowerpot with wigglers. She's not a good housekeeper. It's in the back of the tank so it's easy to miss and I can't get a good pic because it being so far back but you can see a mass of something anyway. You'll have to take my word on it being babies. lol

I'm gonna move my angels out of the tank today because the kribs are ripping thier fins up. Nasty little buggers.

Thanks.
The angels are adult albinos and handfed. They will swim into my hand, no net needed. . I don't forsee any problems with the move but you just never know with angelfish, it could go either way. Thanks for the luck.

updated shots.
The fry are hopping around now, almost swimming. Mom has moved them twice, this time to the front of the flower pot. I guess she gave up trying to elude my flashlight and camera so I was able get better pics. Well, not but better but you can tell they are fish. lol They are starting to get some stripes.

I counted @ 70+ fry in that pot. Mom is certainly very good at nuturing that brood and keeping them safe from prying eyes, lights and cameras.

lol They are hilarious. I've been watching them and they remind me of a hen with chicks the way the babies scurry after mom. lol They are great parents. So far they are doing well.
