My first Apistogramma baenschi fry (pics to follow I hope)

I bought a pair of Apistogramma baenschi on AquaBid.com Labor Day weekend and they just spawned for the first time. I knew for several days that something was going on the way the male and female were acting but today I saw the female escorting about three dozen fry around the back of the tank. I'm feeding them Hikari First Bites and Cyclop-Eeze for now so we'll see how well they do.

Here is a pic of the female and some fry after they have been swimming around the tank for four days. The fry aren't very easy to make out so I've taken the liberty of putting red lines around some of them.
