Kribensis Pulcher Christmas Spawn

Finally had my pair of kribs spawned over the holidays and so far all is well with the fry. Got lucky with these two as I picked them up on a whim hoping they would pair up.

Thanks. I've seen some really dark kribs but these ones stood out to me. My plan is to let a spawn grow for a month then remove the fry to another tank and then trigger a respawn.

Thanks. I'm hoping to get a lot more spawns as good as the first one. I'm gonna remove the fry after a month to trigger another spawn. That way the little ones are a bit bigger and easier to maintain in their own tank

Will the fry survive in a community tank or will the parents lose out protecting them
