Kribs laying eggs???

Hey guys, I looked in my kribensis pair tank and I couldn't find the female until he poked her head of of the cave and I thought it was odd cause she never really goes in there and then the male disappears into the pot and the female after and they keep doing it. The female after does not leave the cave more than about 10 cm. is she laying eggs??

Hear is some pics ( I did not want to shine a light in the cave)

Fixed the title.

It sounds like they are breeding, or have already bred and are guarding eggs. I'd just keep an eye on them and in a few days you should see fry.

Well if they are in a community tank then the fry might get eaten. Otherwise, just wait till you see them free swimming and squirt some finely crushed flake or pellets in their area. If you can get a microworm culture it works really well.
